Blatant Lies

Population1.684 billion


The Republic of Blatant Lies is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its burgeoning swan population. The devout population of 1.684 billion Blatant Liesians 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.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 30.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Blatant Liesian economy, worth 63.3 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,608 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blatant Lies's national animal is the swan.

Blatant Lies is ranked 29,137th in the world and 3rd in From The End for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,099.33 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
