Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Jingoistic States of Lafendinger is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its triple-decker prams, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 744 million Lafendingerians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 19.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Lafendingerian economy, worth 61.7 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 82,949 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Women wearing male lounge-wear are quizzed for hours by mental health practitioners, forecasts predict rains of loose lead and mortar shells for the next six weeks, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lafendinger's national animal is the A-10 Warthog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lafendinger is ranked 68,328th in the world and 5th in Sals Realm II for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 133,933.4 Standard Monetary Units.
