The Dominion of Lazarene Ryccia is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 3.139 billion Lazarene Ryccians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 46.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The large but inefficient Lazarene Ryccian economy, worth 144 trillion Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 45,990 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lazarene Ryccia's national animal is the Phoenix.
