The Oppressed States of Suffering

Population26 million

CurrencyIranian Rial
AnimalThe Magic Conch

The Dictatorship of The Oppressed States of Suffering is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 26 million Oppressed States of Sufferingians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The basket case Oppressed States of Sufferingian economy, worth 421 billion Iranian Rials 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 Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 16,195 Iranian Rials, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Oppressed States of Sufferingian military unleashed its biological weapons, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, The Oppressed States of Suffering is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Oppressed States of Suffering's national animal is the The Magic Conch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
