Spiritual Lyrical Individual Miracles

Population3.001 billion

LeaderGeneral Secretary Kang


The Great Midwest Commonwealth of Spiritual Lyrical Individual Miracles is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by General Secretary Kang with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.001 billion Freelanders are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Indianapolis. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Freelander economy, worth a remarkable 1,152 trillion FLDS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 384,164 FLDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

On-duty Air Spiritual Lyrical Individual Miracles flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, the government has certified several glow-in-the-dark athletes as drug free, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank. Crime is totally unknown. Spiritual Lyrical Individual Miracles's national animal is the Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spiritual Lyrical Individual Miracles is ranked 2,724th in the world and 152nd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 95.14 on the Human Development Index.
