The Most Glorious Peoples of The Woefully Uninformed Marx Followers is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Glorious Supreme Dear Leader in Chief with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.684 billion Comrades 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vodkagrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Marxist economy, worth a remarkable 9,131 trillion Rubbles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 488,718 Rubbles, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Pedants defending Glorious Supreme Dear Leader in Chief observe that psychopaths and sociopaths aren't exactly the same thing, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Woefully Uninformed Marx Followers's national animal is the Drunk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodox Alcoholism.

The Woefully Uninformed Marx Followers is ranked 302,705th in the world and 9,956th in Balder for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 16.92 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
