Sunday School Dropouts

Population6.916 billion



The Subversive Society of Sunday School Dropouts is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Wednesday with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 6.916 billion deviants enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Youcan'tsitwithus. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant deviant economy, worth 104 trillion Barters a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Trout Farming. Average income is 15,124 Barters, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Reports of attacks by bright purple sixty-foot high spiders have recently shot up, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, soldiers have swapped their uniforms for prisonwear, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Sunday School Dropouts after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sunday School Dropouts's national animal is the Jackal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sunday School Dropouts is ranked 99,269th in the world and 3rd in Alcohol for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,094.15 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
