The Pokemon Dystopia

Population4.953 billion


The Rogue Nation of The Pokemon Dystopia is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.953 billion Pokemon Dystopians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The strong Pokemon Dystopian economy, worth 320 trillion Pokémons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 64,772 Pokémons, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 498,078 per year while the poor average 2,255, a ratio of 220 to 1.

Crime is a problem. The Pokemon Dystopia's national animal is the Mewtwo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Pokemon Dystopia is ranked 8,467th in the world and 2nd in End 500 for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 8,396.24 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
