That Crazy Casbah Sound

Population301 million

Currencyjet fighter

The United Socialist States of That Crazy Casbah Sound is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 301 million boogie men are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant crazy casbah economy, worth 6.69 trillion jet fighters a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is 22,241 jet fighters, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. That Crazy Casbah Sound's national animal is the armadillo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

That Crazy Casbah Sound is ranked 229,305th in the world and 26th in Inferno Stellaria for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 5,226.72 Standard Monetary Units.
