Lo Kine

Population283 million


The Democratic Republic of Lo Kine is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its burgeoning dog population. The democratic population of 283 million Lo Kineans enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 26.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Lo Kinean economy, worth 7.20 trillion mals a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 25,433 mals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lo Kine's national animal is the dog.

Lo Kine is ranked 47,391st in the world and 1,662nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Primitive, scoring 50.99 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
