Muppet Rizzo the Rat

Population1.827 billion


The Republic of Muppet Rizzo the Rat is a massive, pleasant nation, remarkable for its closed borders, teetotalling pirates, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.827 billion rats have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.2%.

The a rat economy, worth 78.7 trillion jellybeans 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. 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 43,091 jellybeans, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

The army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, you gots to be part of the Party to get in to the party, politicians are forced to vote with their party leaders, and the new Rat Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls. Crime is a major problem. Muppet Rizzo the Rat's national animal is the rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Muppet Rizzo the Rat is ranked 229,637th in the world and 50th in The Muppet Show for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.4 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
