Peace through Superior Firepower

Population7.464 billion

CapitalFortified Monument of Peace


The Armed Republic of Peace through Superior Firepower is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.464 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 large, 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 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Peace through Superior Firepowerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,293 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 black market in Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Basket Weaving. 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 173,295 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, voting is voluntary, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 172,735th in the world and 5th in Democratia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 11.34 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
