The Queen's State of Lac Des Chein is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 9.641 billion Lac Des Cheinians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 24.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Lac Des Cheinian economy, worth 409 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,441 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Corporations are forbidden from employing outside the nation, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, army rations are served on silver platters, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lac Des Chein's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
