Universal State Formula

The Republic of Universal State Formula is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.56 billion citizens of Universal State Formula are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Prime. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 4,589 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 699,689 Standard Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The GPS-tracked jogging routes of military personnel are a possible security risk, the government has enacted freedom of information, blind dates tend to result in bruised shins, and royalist is the most offensive slur in the Universal State Formula language. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Universal State Formula's national animal is the Leviathan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Universal State Formula is ranked 207,476th in the world and 9,148th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -1758.59 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
