The Fifteen Billion Lemmings of Lemmingtopias is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Lemming Sage with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 15.727 billion Lemmingtopiasians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. 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.

Lemmingtopias is ranked 9th in Atlantis and 7,145th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 15 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
