Ferngully LR

Population32.291 billion



The Heathen Orgy of Ferngully LR is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic population of 32.291 billion Ferngully LRians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government prioritizes Environment, although Social Policy, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hexxus. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Ferngully LRian economy, worth a remarkable 1,228 trillion chlorophylls a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 38,046 chlorophylls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, the government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', and citizens select which government department gets their income tax chlorophylls each year. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ferngully LR's national animal is the termite, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ferngully LR is ranked 53,497th in the world and 2nd in Island of Lost Souls for Most Politically Free, scoring 75.22 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
