Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederated Necropoli of Lorkhan is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.357 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 46.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lorkhanian economy, worth 759 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 90,862 Bonedusts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Huge explosions in the sky are a daily occurrence in the cities, the government is spending billions of taxpayer Bonedusts to support "struggling" industries, streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 22,556th in the world and 1st in Cor Ibahn for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 5,516.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
