The Land of Madness and Insanity

Population3.835 billion

LeaderQueen Butterfly


The Dark Kingdom of The Land of Madness and Insanity is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Butterfly with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.835 billion Insane people enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyōki. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.9%.

The very strong Insane economy, worth 303 trillion Drobbles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 79,189 Drobbles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 239,447 per year while the poor average 20,388, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, school children are forced to sing the national anthem every morning, and bars are packed at all hours. Crime is totally unknown. The Land of Madness and Insanity's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Land of Madness and Insanity is ranked 52,874th in the world and 31st in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,520.59 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
