Peace through Superior Firepower

Population8.655 billion

CapitalFortified Monument of Peace


The Armed Republic of Peace through Superior Firepower is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.655 billion Peace through Superior Firepowerians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortified Monument of Peace. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Peace through Superior Firepowerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,641 trillion bitcoins 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Retail. 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 189,652 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Peace through Superior Firepower's national animal is the unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Peace through Superior Firepower is ranked 1,736th in the world and 1st in Democratia for Most Primitive, scoring 196.24 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
