Yoshikage Kira and Killer Queen

The Federal Republic of Yoshikage Kira and Killer Queen is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 339 million Explosions 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 48.2%.

The strong Explosion economy, worth 20.9 trillion Za Dustoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 61,762 Za Dustoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, the economy is undergoing a traumatic transition to capitalism, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yoshikage Kira and Killer Queen's national animal is the Killer Queen, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Yoshikage Kira and Killer Queen is ranked 181,083rd in the world and 4,385th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 20.9 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
