Japanese Ronald Mc Donald

Population186 million

CurrencyBig Mac

The Empire of Japanese Ronald Mc Donald is a very large, efficient nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 186 million Mc Kids 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 tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The thriving Japanese Ronald Mc Donaldian economy, worth 12.1 trillion Big Macs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 65,259 Big Macs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 237,792 per year while the poor average 12,727, a ratio of 18.7 to 1.

A death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, Japanese Ronald Mc Donald successfully hosted the The Great Universe Olympics, boys who even ask about cheerleading are placed on the Sex Offenders Register, and voting is voluntary. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Japanese Ronald Mc Donald's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Japanese Ronald Mc Donald is ranked 28,583rd in the world and 1st in The Great Universe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 110.9 on the Hayek Index.
