OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Territory of Offal is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Wasude Stralwemp with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, triple-decker prams, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.681 billion Offalites 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Djardjingling. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Offalian economy, worth a remarkable 2,785 trillion dollars 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, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. 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 287,726 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, it's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it", police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and religious classes are compulsory for all school students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Offal's national animal is the mountain bike, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Red Hot Jalapeņo Poppers.

Offal is ranked 14,798th in the world and 574th in The North Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 6,477.65 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
