Meat Sandwich

Population16.836 billion



The Kingdom of Meat Sandwich is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Doom with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.836 billion Meat Sandwichians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Doomstadt. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Meat Sandwichian economy, worth a remarkable 2,130 trillion Francs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 126,534 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, rumour has it Doom needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten, it is typical to be greeted by a string of curse words in Meat Sandwichian restaurants, and statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meat Sandwich's national animal is the Moose, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Meat Sandwich is ranked 30,117th in the world and 1,239th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,015.73 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
