Why Do You Do This

The Holy Empire of Why Do You Do This is a tiny, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 8 million Why Do You Do Thisians 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, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.5%.

The Why Do You Do Thisian economy, worth 397 billion playthings 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 dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 49,715 playthings, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

It's a hard-knock life for the orphans doing factory work for a pittance, the nation is under martial law, it's best to decline if Leader offers to buy a round of drinks, and judges are rumored to find in favor of whoever bribes them the most. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Why Do You Do This's national animal is the human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Why Do You Do This is ranked 196,854th in the world and 276th in The Black Hawks for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -1.91 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
