Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great Utopia of The LOL Nation is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Emperor with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.503 billion LOLias love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of LOL City. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient LOL Nationian economy, worth 230 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 153,130 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The LOL Nation's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The LOL Nation is ranked 101,947th in the world and 5,084th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 46.38 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
