Lurklife 3

Population3.638 billion

LeaderLiminne Lapule


The Undersea Lurkers of Lurklife 3 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Liminne Lapule with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 3.638 billion Lurklife 3ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ibuki. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Lurklife 3ian economy, worth 153 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 42,113 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Those found guilty of illicit affairs are jailed, lottery winners spend most of their money on security, some members of Parliament are illiterate, and education is transforming people into first-rate snobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lurklife 3's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Tokodame.

Lurklife 3 is ranked 155,845th in the world and 2,181st in Suspicious for Smartest Citizens, with 25.55 quips per hour.
