Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederated Necropoli of Lorkhan is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.67 billion Lorkhanians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ur. The average income tax rate is 45.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lorkhanian economy, worth 685 trillion Bonedusts a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 89,313 Bonedusts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million Bonedust battlesuits, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, bike rage is all the rage, and crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lorkhan's national animal is the Cliff Racer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lorkhan is ranked 154,758th in the world and 4th in Cor Ibahn for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8.49 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
