The People's Republic of The Lavender Country is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Frida Lovall with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 957 million Lavenderians 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, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Queer Lake. The average income tax rate is 60.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lavenderian economy, worth 66.7 trillion Yescas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Average income is 69,727 Yescas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, and depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Lavender Country's national animal is the Sarkastodon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Lavender Country is ranked 147,806th in the world and 80th in International Democratic Union for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
