LeaderLord Lordieth


The Mischievous Meerkats of Lordieth is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Lordieth with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 19.129 billion Lordiethians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mystica. The average income tax rate is 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lordiethian economy, worth a remarkable 6,591 trillion Sheckles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 344,573 Sheckles, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime is totally unknown. Lordieth's national animal is the Meerkat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lordieth is ranked 155,150th in the world and 12th in Snazzy for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -15.81 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
