The Criminal Syndicate of Systemic Corruption is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Boss Vursht Zamler with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.03 billion mobsters are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mammon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient underworld economy, worth 190 trillion coupons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 185,002 coupons, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,372,134 per year while the poor average 7,424, a ratio of 184 to 1.

The judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, raindances intended to summon storms instead attract tourists, it's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it", and every conceivable scenic location has been completely booked by couples desperate to marry. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Systemic Corruption's national animal is the poor, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Greed.

Systemic Corruption is ranked 775th in the world and 7th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Fattest Citizens, with 67.46 Obesity Rate.
