The Sparkling Army

Population1.245 billion


The Violent Purple of The Sparkling Army is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.245 billion Sparkles live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The strong Sparkling economy, worth 61.2 trillion Spareks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 49,172 Spareks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 316,918 per year while the poor average 3,082, a ratio of 102 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Sparkling Army's national animal is the Beast, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Sparkling Army is ranked 227,184th in the world and 12th in The Infinite Army for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -4.9 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
