Malarkey Detected 23

Population1.425 billion


The Republic of Malarkey Detected 23 is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, frequent executions, and otherworldly petting zoo.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 26.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Malarkey Detected 23ian economy, worth 75.4 trillion Malarkeys a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 52,892 Malarkeys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Malarkey Detected 23's national animal is the Malarkey, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.
