Regional Influence: Superpower


The Mort Union of Infected Mushroom is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by IM with an iron fist, and remarkable for its lack of airports, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 18.214 billion citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crayon City. The average income tax rate is 65.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Infected Mushroomian economy, worth a remarkable 6,117 trillion Kefkaris 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. 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 an amazing 335,856 Kefkaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Even doll houses and dog kennels have to be able to withstand rigorous earthquake testing, posters remind people that 'Hoarding Mushrooms Is Theft', government ministers claim to ride dragons to work, and Infected Mushroom has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Infected Mushroom's national animal is the Pixie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Infected Mushroom is ranked 273,647th in the world and 8th in Mount Olympus for Most Avoided, scoring 0.31 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
