The LOL Nation

The Great Utopia of The LOL Nation is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Emperor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.063 billion LOLias 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 medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Administration, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of LOL City. The average income tax rate is 85.6%.

The frighteningly efficient LOL Nationian economy, worth 331 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 160,895 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Home renovation shows are increasingly popular, citizens try to ignore gruesome pictures of decaying teeth printed on their soda cans, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, and thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The LOL Nation's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The LOL Nation is ranked 79,080th in the world and 4,203rd in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 38.85 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
