The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud

Population7.522 billion

LeaderStudly Spud


The Half-Baked Abrogation of The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Studly Spud with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.522 billion Monster Mash are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spudtopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Mashed economy, worth a remarkable 2,834 trillion Chips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 376,786 Chips, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,145,771 per year while the poor average 96,227, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, and Mashed Gladiators is a ratings success. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud's national animal is the Spudazzle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Spudlyism.

The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud is ranked 841st in the world and 5th in Spiritus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 35,957.58 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
