The Sanada Clan

Population6.584 billion

LeaderLady Lala Lunalala Lalalia


The LaLaLand of The Sanada Clan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Lala Lunalala Lalalia with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.584 billion Lalas are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of LalaLand. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Lala economy, worth a remarkable 2,909 trillion Lunis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 441,921 Lunis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sanitised and dull music festivals of The Sanada Clan are famed for their reasonable volume levels, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Sanada Clan's national animal is the Lalaiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lalaism.

The Sanada Clan is ranked 155,844th in the world and 7,877th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 22.05 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
