A Badly Conceived Designation

Population8.229 billion


Animal~~ANIMAL~~ cow

The ~~TYPE~~ of A Badly Conceived Designation is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by ~~LEADER~~ with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, parental licensing program, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.229 billion ~~DEMONYMNOUNPLURAL~~ are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ~~CAPITAL~~. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient ~~DEMONYMADJECTIVE~~ economy, worth a remarkable 1,288 trillion ~~CURRENCY~~s a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 156,537 ~~CURRENCY~~s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious officials are furious after discovering that things made of stone do not burn well at the stake, the nation is known abroad for fast food and nothing else, children as young as eight can be found working in factories, and the suicide rate mysteriously skyrockets during census years. Crime is a serious problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. A Badly Conceived Designation's national animal is the ~~ANIMAL~~ cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.

A Badly Conceived Designation is ranked 10,535th in the world and 8th in Testregionia for Highest Economic Output, with 1,288 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
