The Oppressed Peoples of Neonlake is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 602 million Neonites are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NeonCloud. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Neon economy, worth 21.0 trillion Floppy Disks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,887 Floppy Disks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The decision to be oppressed is now made democratically, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to NeonCloud to enjoy their national art, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', and there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neonlake's national animal is the glow-crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Neonlake is ranked 174,793rd in the world and 7,530th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.98 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
