The Italian Stallion

Population10.268 billion


The Incorporated States of The Italian Stallion is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and otherworldly petting zoo. The cynical, devout population of 10.268 billion Italian Stallionians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 50.7%.

The powerhouse Italian Stallionian economy, worth 786 trillion Frattastans a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,616 Frattastans, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Weathermen are being arrested for attempting to read the future, the The Italian Stallion City Prison Revue puts on a better stage show than anything in the Theatre District, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and the Italian Stallionian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Italian Stallion's national animal is the Fratty, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Italian Stallion is ranked 125,344th in the world and 4,438th in Balder for Most Pro-Market, scoring 39.44 on the Rand Index.
