Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Empire of Laurarcor is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Ludwig II with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 12.03 billion Laurarcorians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria Plaz. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Laurarcorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,299 trillion Xcorvics a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 191,159 Xcorvics, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit, the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, and directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Victoria Plaz as a backdrop. 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 175,856th in the world and 120th in Wysteria for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -13.56 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
