Republic of Berzerkistan

Population6.954 billion

LeaderFederal president


The Federation of Republic of Berzerkistan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Federal president with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.954 billion Berzerkistanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gotham. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Berzerkistanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,603 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 374,423 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The restriction that you must be over 1.1 metres tall to ride a carnotaurus has recently been waived, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, and the Republic of Berzerkistan Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime is totally unknown. Republic of Berzerkistan's national animal is the Eagel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Republic of Berzerkistan is ranked 2,333rd in the world and 54th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 9,046.69 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
