“In all honesty”
|Category: Benevolent Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Hermit
The Queen's State of Laminatota is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-working, cynical population of 14.535 billion Laminatotans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.
The relatively small, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.3%.
The thriving Laminatotan economy, worth 612 trillion betales a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is 42,113 betales, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 218,404 per year while the poor average 4,399, a ratio of 49.6 to 1.
Voting is voluntary, the police force is on a recruitment drive, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Laminatota's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
