Lobelia Sackville-Baggins

The Matriarchy of Lobelia Sackville-Baggins is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.982 billion Lobelia Sackville-Bagginsians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The thriving Lobelia Sackville-Bagginsian economy, worth 521 trillion silver spoons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 74,730 silver spoons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 264,522 per year while the poor average 15,243, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Lobelia Sackville-Baggins's national animal is the ruffian.

Lobelia Sackville-Baggins is ranked 206,391st in the world and 117th in Middle Earth for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.71 Kickbacks Per Hour.
