Ders Des Lourk

Population1.314 billion


The Republic of Ders Des Lourk is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.314 billion Ders Des Lourkians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.6%.

The very strong Ders Des Lourkian economy, worth 56.3 trillion rubles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is 42,831 rubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 167,567 per year while the poor average 7,458, a ratio of 22.5 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ders Des Lourk's national animal is the horse, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Ders Des Lourk is ranked 30,130th in the world and 3rd in The Parliamentary Union of Nations for Most Avoided, scoring 164.71 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
