The Grumpy Old Pumpkin Sage of Mediobogdum
“Pumpkins for Pirate Brains”
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Location: the West Pacific
Regional Influence: Vassal
The Grumpy Old Pumpkin Sage of Mediobogdum is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by His Immaculate Munchiness with an iron fist, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.273 billion Mediobogdumians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gariannonum. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdumian economy, worth a remarkable 4,571 trillion Pumpkin Brains a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 250,202 Pumpkin Brains, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Millions of simultaneously backfiring toilets have flooded Gariannonum with effluent, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and police and sick people alike fear the Day of Rest as all institutions are forced to shut down. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mediobogdum's national animal is the Gyr Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Violetism.
