Dumb Ideologies

The Strasserist Sundae Club of Dumb Ideologies is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Taiga with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 27.866 billion DInizens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of DIrusalem. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient DInizen economy, worth a remarkable 3,711 trillion Thonks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,187 Thonks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protestors are soaking piles of Thonks in blood to make a point about government incomes, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and Dumb Ideologies is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dumb Ideologies's national animal is the DIplodocus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is DIsestablishmentarianism.

Dumb Ideologies is ranked 198,472nd in the world and 6th in Kotturheim for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -13.33 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
