Breadstick Olympics

Population116 million


The Rogue Nation of Breadstick Olympics is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed population of 116 million Breadstick Olympicsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 35.3%.

The Breadstick Olympicsian economy, worth 5.58 trillion breadsticks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. Average income is 48,091 breadsticks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Breadstick Olympics's national animal is the Croissant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Breadstick Olympics is ranked 111,491st in the world and 4,647th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 21.6 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
