The Pretty bad thing to do of Gruesome Murder is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.235 billion Gruesome Murderians 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 large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 48.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Gruesome Murderian economy, worth 83.5 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 67,602 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, Tetris has been banned for its graphic violent content, and toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gruesome Murder's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
