UGM-133

The Geek Love of UGM-133 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.526 billion UGM-133ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Environment are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.2%.

The frighteningly efficient UGM-133ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,857 trillion USDS a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 154,239 USDS, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

CSI Forest is this year's hit new crime show, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, the government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, and the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. UGM-133's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

UGM-133 is ranked 194,146th in the world and 1st in The Sea of Death for Most Politically Free, scoring 26 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
