Manzhou-guo

The People's Republic of Manzhou-guo is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 427 million Manzhou-guoans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Manzhou-guoan economy, worth 26.6 trillion Du-kates 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 62,250 Du-kates, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

All work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, the military claims that their threatening letters are signed with the blood of their enemies, and bronze and marble supplies are running low as sculptors depict full-figured subjects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Manzhou-guo's national animal is the Corsac Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Manzhou-guo is ranked 77,697th in the world and 2,150th in the Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 22.4 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
