The Empire of Lagoonish is a huge, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 386 million Lagoonishians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Lagoonishian economy, worth 30.5 trillion Litas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 79,086 Litas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Foxes and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lagoonish's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
