The Fourteen Billion Lemmings of Lemmingtopias is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Lemming Sage with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 14.876 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Social Equality, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lomapolis. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.
Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, rap artists are regularly jailed for promoting extremist groups, Lemming is one of the most popular forenames in Lemmingtopias, and the nation leads Atlantis in per capita stalking. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Lemmingtopias's national animal is the Lemming, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is the Way of Gaia, and its currency is the Jelly Tot.
