The Steady Diet of Nothing

Population5.76 billion


The Damascene Microdot of The Steady Diet of Nothing is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.76 billion Steady Diet of Nothingians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 32.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Steady Diet of Nothingian economy, worth 262 trillion Gears a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 45,510 Gears, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The World Damascene Microdot Games have been won again by The Steady Diet of Nothing as no other country cares enough to compete, the military has declared war on all religious influence, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, and all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Steady Diet of Nothing's national animal is the Neutral, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Steady Diet of Nothing is ranked 132,422nd in the world and 11th in San Francisco for Most Secular, with 14.73 Atheism Rate.
