Young Husband

Population8.304 billion


The Queen's State of Young Husband is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.304 billion Young Husbandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.9%.

The strong Young Husbandian economy, worth 414 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 49,883 betales, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Elections have been outlawed, organ donation is compulsory, the right to free speech is being drastically curtailed, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Young Husband's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Young Husband is ranked 102,847th in the world and 6th in Missouri for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 550.41 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
