The Democratic People's Republic of Lardsburg is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Bob Sanders with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.524 billion Lardsburgians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lardsburg. The average income tax rate is 54.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Lardsburgian economy, worth 178 trillion Lards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,104 Lards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, epileptic patients switch their medications to whichever has a 'buy one get one free' offer, a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, and the moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lardsburg's national animal is the Pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
