The Democratic Republic of Laynesburg is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, democratic population of 611 million Laynesburgians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 22.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Laynesburgian economy, worth 29.3 trillion rupees a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,981 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, vaccinations are mandatory, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laynesburg's national animal is the Mastiff, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
