Lyngbry

The Empire of Lyngbry is a small, orderly nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, cynical population of 40 million Lyngbryians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 20.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Lyngbryian economy, worth 2.08 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,886 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lyngbry's national animal is the otter.

Lyngbry is ranked 3,945th in the world and 3rd in Greater Cyngland for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 12,707.09 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
