Plague Utopia

Population633 million

AnimalUpupa epops

The Holy Empire of Plague Utopia is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its closed borders, fear of technology, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 633 million Utopians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Plague Utopian economy, worth 27.5 trillion Indulgences 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 43,487 Indulgences, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Vegetarianism is compulsory, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and government-sponsored gallows are being erected by Violetist temples. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plague Utopia's national animal is the Upupa epops, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Plague Utopia is ranked 199,066th in the world and 12th in Dreams of Good Hope for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -5.48 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
