Spontaneous Generation

Population37.34 billion


The Indisputable Evidence of Spontaneous Generation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 37.34 billion Spontaneous Generationians 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 tiny, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, with Law & Order, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda, while Welfare and Administration aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.3%.

The thriving Spontaneous Generationian economy, worth a remarkable 1,730 trillion maggots a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is 46,334 maggots, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 141,541 per year while the poor average 11,756, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, the government snoops on private internet connections, thieves are flogged in public for their crimes, and eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Spontaneous Generation's national animal is the skeptic, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Spontaneous Generation is ranked 141,196th in the world and 3rd in Bad Science for Most Secular, with 16.98 Atheism Rate.
