The Memes before 2013 of Captain Lard is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 601 million Slaves are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of McDonalds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Captain Lardian economy, worth 85.8 trillion despacitoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 142,774 despacitoes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 622,931 per year while the poor average 20,678, a ratio of 30.1 to 1.
Art criticism in Captain Lard is scathingly destructive, legions of police officers force people to move into massive urban apartments, adultery has been made a capital offence, and chrome-clad space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on. Crime is a serious problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Captain Lard's national animal is the Jesus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
