The Unified Missourtama States

Population2.705 billion



The Bustling Bureaucracy of The Unified Missourtama States is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by TUMS with an even hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 2.705 billion Missourtaman, 357 million of whom are zombies, are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Furbel. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Missourtaman economy, worth 321 trillion souls a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 118,736 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, and vaccinations are mandatory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Unified Missourtama States's national animal is the okapi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.

The Unified Missourtama States is ranked 221,144th in the world and 12,244th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.28 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
