Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Lab is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mr Arby with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.176 billion Labites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lab City. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Labian economy, worth 757 trillion Cups a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,518 Cups, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, organ donation rates have hit a new low, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lab's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lab is ranked 12,135th in the world and 252nd in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 4,363.16 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
