The Seriousness of a Clownjury of Lily Pad Nation is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lily the Pad with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.272 billion Lily Padians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pond Drop. The average income tax rate is 68.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Lily Pad Nationian economy, worth 182 trillion Coppers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 143,443 Coppers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, cars are banned, and legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving". Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lily Pad Nation's national animal is the Frog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Frog Popeism.

Lily Pad Nation is ranked 72,334th in the world and 3,078th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 19.77 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
