Laocracy

Population16.264 billion

CurrencyDream
AnimalUnicorn

The Community of Laocracy is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.264 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 receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laocracian economy, worth a remarkable 3,951 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 242,952 Dreams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office. Crime is totally unknown. Laocracy's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Laocracy is ranked 82,275th in the world and 3,140th in the South Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 752.01 milliStalins.
