Laver Island

The Kalaallit Nunaat Moment of Laver Island is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Vincent and PM Einar Grímsson with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.101 billion Laverians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vulkanerborg. The average income tax rate is 49.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laverian economy, worth a remarkable 1,492 trillion Vixes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 147,730 Vixes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, every citizen sounds like a television news anchor, and the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead. Crime is totally unknown. Laver Island's national animal is the Laverian Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Laver Island is ranked 235,777th in the world and 1,064th in Europe for Fattest Citizens, with 6.41 Obesity Rate.
