The Wonderful World of Colours

Population717 million

CurrencyPaint Brush

The Republic of The Wonderful World of Colours is a huge, genial nation, notable for its triple-decker prams, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 717 million Colour Boys 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, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Colourish economy, worth 50.1 trillion Paint Brushes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is 69,930 Paint Brushes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Builders across The Wonderful World of Colours are blocked up with orders for new public loos, prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Wonderful World of Colours's national animal is the Unicorn.

The Wonderful World of Colours is ranked 171,460th in the world and 124th in The Wonderful World of Colours for Smartest Citizens, with 25 quips per hour.
