Laocracy

Population19.625 billion

The Community of Laocracy is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.625 billion Laocracians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laocracian economy, worth a remarkable 4,777 trillion Dreams a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 243,443 Dreams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fines for getting caught with the wrong recipe book can force Laocracians into bankruptcy, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, and travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing. Crime is totally unknown. Laocracy's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Laocracy is ranked 271,631st in the world and 1,270th in Europe for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -30.55 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
