Lake Perseverance

The State On The Highest Holy of Lake Perseverance is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its teetotalling pirates, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 1.356 billion Luneraits are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ku. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Selinian economy, worth 170 trillion lunas 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 125,474 lunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

With increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, algae vats are considered a delicacy, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, and the algae vat is protected from hunting and slowly coming back from the brink of extinction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lake Perseverance's national animal is the algae vat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lake Perseverance is ranked 61,165th in the world and 37th in Northern Utopia for Highest Economic Output, with 170 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
