The Marsupial Illuminati

Population10.646 billion

LeaderThe Eye of Providence


The 𝔏𝔦𝔟𝔢𝔯𝔞𝔩 𝔄𝔯𝔱𝔦𝔰𝔱 of The Marsupial Illuminati is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Eye of Providence with a fair hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 10.646 billion Marsupials enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Education receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marsupium. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Marsupial economy, worth a remarkable 1,175 trillion Pouches a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 110,425 Pouches, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

"What's the Frequency, The Eye of Providence?" is a favorite phrase of backyard radio broadcasters when interrupting official diplomatic channels, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and the nation's biggest export is stupidity. Crime is pervasive, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. The Marsupial Illuminati's national animal is the Marsupial, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pouchism.

The Marsupial Illuminati is ranked 140,646th in the world and 1st in Sodom and Gomorrah for Most Armed, with 0.29 Weapons Per Person.
