Working scumbags

Population987 million

CapitalWork Center


The Democratic States of Working scumbags is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 987 million Working Scumbagsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Work Center. The average income tax rate is 25.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Working scumbagsian economy, worth 96.0 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 97,290 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, edutainment video games are taking Working scumbags's students to the next level, and the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Working scumbags's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Working scumbags is ranked 59,713th in the world and 1,314th in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 5.66 bananas ingested per day.
