Upper Sel Hous Ath

The Dictatorship of Upper Sel Hous Ath is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.449 billion Upper Sel Hous Athians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 60.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Upper Sel Hous Athian economy, worth 25.2 trillion pounds 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Cheese Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 17,404 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and a major religion has been named as Upper Sel Hous Ath's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Upper Sel Hous Ath's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Upper Sel Hous Ath is ranked 3,851st in the world and 11th in Forest for Most Authoritarian, with 8,759.88 milliStalins.
