The Stolen Lands

Population3.096 billion



The Queendom of The Stolen Lands is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 3.096 billion Stolen Landsians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large, liberal, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tuskdale. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stolen Landsian economy, worth 408 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,859 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

They say that Leader's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Stolen Lands's national animal is the capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Stolen Lands is ranked 7,115th in the world and 204th in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,768.72 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
