The Langburn Islands

Population261 million



The Commonwealth of The Langburn Islands is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 261 million Langburnians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Onita. The average income tax rate is 61.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Langburnian economy, worth 22.0 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,441 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, the only record being broken at sporting events is the highest death toll, cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, and chewing tree bark proves to have limited value during childbirth. Crime is almost non-existent. The Langburn Islands's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Langburn Islands is ranked 94,320th in the world and 3,209th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,105.78 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
