The Republic of Lab is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mr Arby with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.461 billion, 4.252 billion of whom are zombies, Labites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lab City. The average income tax rate is 84%, and even higher for the wealthy. A very small private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

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. Lab's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Cup.

Lab is ranked 3,757th in the West Pacific and 103,390th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Lab is currently considering its options.

People: 208,960,194

Dead: 1,399,969,690

Survival Rate: 3.57%
