The Lost Men

Population2.192 billion



The Shelter of The Lost Men is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Friend with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.192 billion Lost Men are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hope. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lost economy, worth 188 trillion Faiths a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 86,093 Faiths, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sometimes a whole prison wing will house a single prisoner, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Lost Men's national animal is the Tit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Friendship.

The Lost Men is ranked 167,841st in the world and 378th in Europeia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.12 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
