Missouri Racism

Population1.016 billion

Animalsea otter

The Oppressed Peoples of Missouri Racism is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.016 billion Racismians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Missouri Racismian economy, worth 130 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 128,297 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, a wide-ranging purge of leading officials and family members is being carried out by Leader, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, and the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Missouri Racism's national animal is the sea otter, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Missouri Racism is ranked 161,363rd in the world and 6,736th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 57 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
