Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Superior Goat Nation of Lanagon is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kozel with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 14.157 billion Lanagonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lanagonia. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The thriving Lanagonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,475 trillion goats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 104,191 goats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, international tensions are high as Lanagon threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanagon's national animal is the goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lanagon is ranked 9,536th in the world and 242nd in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 13.35 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
