Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Empire of Laurarcor is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Ludwig II with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.42 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 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Laurarcorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,522 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 203,116 Xcorvics, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Victoria Plaz is a police state during international summits, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, an enfeebled opposition party spends most of its time simply trying to stay on the ballot, and polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts. 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 2,537th in the world and 19th in Wysteria for Most Corrupt Governments, with 195.43 Kickbacks Per Hour.
