Democratic North Korea

Population10.8 billion



The Disintegrating States of Democratic North Korea is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Bowser with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 10.8 billion Democratic North Koreans 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helsinki. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Democratic North Korean economy, worth a remarkable 2,222 trillion Qevas a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 205,819 Qevas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Democratic North Korea has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, students do more community service than homework, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Democratic North Korea's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Democratic North Korea is ranked 117,824th in the world and 4,237th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 16.23 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
