A Badly Conceived Designation

Population10.177 billion



The ~~TYPE~~ of A Badly Conceived Designation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by ~~LEADER~~ with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.177 billion ~~DEMONYMNOUNPLURAL~~ are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ~~CAPITAL~~. The average income tax rate is 67.4%.

The frighteningly efficient ~~DEMONYMADJECTIVE~~ economy, worth 837 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 82,319 ~~CURRENCY~~s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Gene-engineered sewerjacks don't smell but they do stink, black tea is only available on the black market, cops enjoy driving jaywalkers into the ground, and critical thinking is grounds for expulsion from university. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. A Badly Conceived Designation's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.

A Badly Conceived Designation is ranked 208,069th in the world and 42nd in Testregionia for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -18.11 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
