Rad Lads

Population691 million



The Most Serene Republic of Rad Lads is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its vat-grown people, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 691 million Rad Ladsians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ladisia. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Rad Ladsian economy, worth 63.4 trillion Memes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 91,692 Memes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Rad Lads Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, much of Rad Lads's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and there's a bright dawn ahead for Rad Lads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rad Lads's national animal is the Okapi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rad Lads is ranked 74,420th in the world and 2,361st in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 125.17566294308 Days.
