Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Empire of Laurarcor is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Viktor with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 13.94 billion Laurarcorians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria Plaz. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Laurarcorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,924 trillion Xcorvics a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 209,758 Xcorvics, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Laurarcorian Space Agency, economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, former nobles are being issued new identities in the wake of the end of serfdom, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laurarcor's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nixon Casteri.

Laurarcor is ranked 164,901st in the world and 70th in Wysteria for Most Devout, with 6.15 Prayers Per Hour.
