Santa Dystopia

Population510 million



The Democratic People's Republic of Santa Dystopia is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 510 million Dystopianis are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rason. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dystopiani economy, worth 61.6 trillion shillings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 120,804 shillings, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 446,508 per year while the poor average 23,038, a ratio of 19.4 to 1.

The government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, Leader's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards, cruel and unusual punishments are being crowdsourced, and 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Santa Dystopia's national animal is the lizard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Santa Dystopia is ranked 184,765th in the world and 7,123rd in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 12.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
