2-4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acid

Population1.837 billion

LeaderThierry Vanlanker


The Herbicide of 2-4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acid is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Thierry Vanlanker with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, avant-garde cinema, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.837 billion 2-4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acidians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Farmia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.5%.

The frighteningly efficient 2-4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acidian economy, worth 183 trillion Chemicals a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 100,009 Chemicals, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 301,889 per year while the poor average 25,810, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation, pet rocks are sold by the pound, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. 2-4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acid's national animal is the Herbicide, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

2-4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acid is ranked 182,642nd in the world and 18th in Lorania for Fattest Citizens, with 8.95 Obesity Rate.
