The Immortal Empire of Suicidistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Throckmorton with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.387 billion Suicidians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cedrus Crestus. The average income tax rate is 83.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Suicidian economy, worth 908 trillion Fresh Grown Yams 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 amazing 268,349 Fresh Grown Yams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.
Even snitches get stitches, only adults may purchase violent video games, it's a miracle that there aren't more plane crashes, and new "Worker's Strike" laws set out who is allowed to strike a worker. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Suicidistan's national animal is the Opabinia, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Throckmortonism.
