Larrys Island6

Population3.256 billion

The Republic of Larrys Island6 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.256 billion Larrys Island6ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Larrys Island6ian economy, worth 344 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,846 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, the idiom 'there are plenty of fish in the sea' isn't so reassuring to Larrys Island6ians, citizenship applications are processed in the time it takes to smile and say "next, please", and they say that Leader's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Larrys Island6's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Larrys Island6 is ranked 236,151st in the world and 33rd in Hendricksons for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -14.93 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
