|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Diplomat
The Grand Duchy of Lexembourg is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Duchess Adélaïde with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.874 billion Lexembourgers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Environment, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville Lexembourg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.2%.
The thriving Lexembourgish economy, worth 497 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is 50,384 francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.
Almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, police officers are seen patrolling the streets armed with satellite-guided truncheons, and rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million francs of property damage. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Lexembourg's national animal is the panthera leo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
