Rengum in Lingo

Population813 million

CapitalThe Electric Forest
LeaderEmily the confused


The Tea drinking people of Rengum in Lingo is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Emily the confused with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 813 million Arborians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Electric Forest. The average income tax rate is 54.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Rengum in Lingoan economy, worth 68.7 trillion Units a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,444 Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rengum in Lingo's national animal is the crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rengum in Lingo is ranked 68,917th in the world and 1,602nd in the West Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 54.71 Effective Tax Rate.
