The Democratic Republic of Larenien is a massive, safe nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.285 billion Larenienians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 46.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Larenienian economy, worth 190 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,364 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Builders across Larenien are blocked up with orders for new public loos, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Larenien's national animal is the porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
