Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Empire of Laurarcor is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Ludwig II with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.231 billion Laurarcorians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria Plaz. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Laurarcorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,505 trillion Xcorvics a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 204,864 Xcorvics, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, dissident voters are sent on a 'relaxing break' at the Ministry of Love, only AI know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laurarcor's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nixon Casteri.

Laurarcor is ranked 2,041st in the world and 33rd in Wysteria for Smartest Citizens, with 138.36 Quips Per Hour.
