Kievan Komondo

Population924 million


The Protectorate of Kievan Komondo is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 924 million Kievan Komondoans 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, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kievan Komondoan economy, worth 99.9 trillion Komondoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 108,097 Komondoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, glossy adverts featuring baby's first puff adorn mothers' magazines, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kievan Komondo's national animal is the Armadillo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kievan Komondo is ranked 45,997th in the world and 1,938th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,940.93 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
