The Underground Manchukon Movement

Population1.922 billion


The People's Resistance of The Underground Manchukon Movement is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.922 billion Underground Manchukon Movementians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Underground Manchukon Movementian economy, worth 17.3 trillion lires a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 8,985 lires, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in The Underground Manchukon Movement City, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, and the children of The Underground Manchukon Movement are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Underground Manchukon Movement's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Underground Manchukon Movement is ranked 232,156th in the world and 2nd in Imperial jabanese for Highest Poor Incomes, with 8,925.84 Standard Monetary Units.
