A Badly Conceived Designation

Population10.4 billion



The ~~TYPE~~ of A Badly Conceived Designation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by ~~LEADER~~ with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 10.4 billion ~~DEMONYMNOUNPLURAL~~ are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ~~CAPITAL~~. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.3%.

The frighteningly efficient ~~DEMONYMADJECTIVE~~ economy, worth 904 trillion ~~CURRENCY~~s a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 87,014 ~~CURRENCY~~s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 265,812 per year while the poor average 22,078, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Breaking rocks in the hot sun now involves using your head, aggressive promotion of global warming puts polar bears on thin ice, the government is frequently held to ransom by the increasing demands of bloodthirsty pirates, and rural citizens live in terror of their local village constable. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. A Badly Conceived Designation's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.

A Badly Conceived Designation is ranked 702nd in the world and 1st in Testregionia for Highest Crime Rates, with 62.13 Crimes Per Hour.
