Empire of Lettuce

Population643 million



The Realm of Empire of Lettuce is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 643 million Lettuceans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oitican. The average income tax rate is 50.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lettucean economy, worth 58.9 trillion Spurts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,580 Spurts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

An underground group of geologists hides new discoveries to protect them from being destroyed in the name of safety, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire of Lettuce's national animal is the Duck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Empire of Lettuce is ranked 63,607th in the world and 1,598th in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Crime Rates, with 71.1 law-abiding acts per hour.
