Lemongrove State

Population489 million


The Republic of Lemongrove State is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The hard-working, cynical population of 489 million Lemonese are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.9%.

The strong Lemonese economy, worth 29.5 trillion baht a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 60,425 baht, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, military spending is on the increase, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lemongrove State's national animal is the leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lemongrove State is ranked 72,202nd in the world and 2,487th in The East Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 71.78 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
