The Unassuming Puppet State of Americad is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, enslaved workforce, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 32.104 billion follower of Josephs are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The income tax rate is 100%.
The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 32,782 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 1,021,125 monies, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,267,371 per year while the poor average 47,415, a ratio of 153 to 1.
Protests are prohibited from blocking traffic, labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Americad's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.
