Lake Toba

The People's Republic of Lake Toba is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 209 million Batak are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.4%.

The thriving Batak economy, worth 13.8 trillion rupiahs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. Average income is 65,904 rupiahs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 348,470 per year while the poor average 6,615, a ratio of 52.7 to 1.

There have been reports of people marrying housepets, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", getting your license is a rite of passage for young adults, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime is a serious problem. Lake Toba's national animal is the lamb, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lake Toba is ranked 60,154th in the world and 1,619th in the Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 25.32 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
