Meaningful Cough

Population3.307 billion


The Free Land of Meaningful Cough is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.307 billion Coughians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Spirituality, with Defense, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Environment are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The strong Meaningful Coughian economy, worth 144 trillion Coughs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 43,574 Coughs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 280,842 per year while the poor average 2,731, a ratio of 102 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Meaningful Cough's national animal is the Llama, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Meaningful Cough is ranked 13,078th in the world and 363rd in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 107.14 Insults Per Minute.
