Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Lab is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mr Arby with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.054 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 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Labian economy, worth 828 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 82,439 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 156,042nd in the world and 8,448th in the West Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 23.45 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
