In a Pigs Eye

The Queen's State of In a Pigs Eye is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.766 billion In a Pigs Eyeans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.3%.

The thriving In a Pigs Eyean economy, worth 596 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Average income is 43,323 betales, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 214,692 per year while the poor average 4,957, a ratio of 43.3 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, deers are considered a delicacy, and In a Pigs Eye has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. In a Pigs Eye's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

In a Pigs Eye is ranked 13,510th in the world and 1st in Tarawa for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.23 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
