The Republic of Lemniscata is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alfredo Moo with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The cynical population of 1.432 billion Lemniscatans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lemniscata. The average income tax rate is 56.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lemniscatan economy, worth 163 trillion Solacs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,455 Solacs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Lemniscatan officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, and it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lemniscata's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lemniscata is ranked 25,164th in the world and 1,261st in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 39.48 Atheism Rate.
