The Shopping Mall Tyranny of Konzum K-plus is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Ivica Todoric with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.027 billion SLAVES are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konzum Shopping Mall. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Konzum K-plusian economy, worth a remarkable 3,727 trillion Floggings a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 464,385 Floggings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,886,683 per year while the poor average 75,985, a ratio of 24.8 to 1.

Harry Potter books are banned, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, holiday-makers leave on the same clandestine boats that illegal immigrants arrive in, and private businesses are paving paradises to put up parking lots. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Konzum K-plus's national animal is the Salmonella, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Konzum K-plus is ranked 180,786th in the world and 35th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Most Politically Free, scoring 14.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
