“We're gonna get you... one way or another”

Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the West Pacific
The Republic of Lab is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mr Arby with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.4 billion Labites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government 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 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Labian economy, worth 490 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 common. Average income is 76,678 Cups, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
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 capable 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.
