Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Superior Goat Nation of Lanagon is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Kozel with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.38 billion Lanagonians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lanagonia. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The very strong Lanagonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,242 trillion gons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 100,358 gons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, international tensions are high as Lanagon threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanagon's national animal is the goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lanagon is ranked 18,053rd in the world and 515th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 200.8 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
