Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Independent Light Blue is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Elvis with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.528 billion Independent Light Blueans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hallsburgh. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Independent Light Bluean economy, worth 504 trillion Gold Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,079 Gold Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, the nation leads Balder in per capita stalking, movie references are legally admissible in court, and meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government imposed restrictions. Crime is totally unknown. Independent Light Blue's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Independent Light Blue is ranked 134,933rd in the world and 3,702nd in Balder for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.93 Crimes Per Hour.
