The Stolen Lands

Population200 million

The Empire of The Stolen Lands is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its enforced nudity, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 200 million Stolen Landsians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 65.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Stolen Landsian economy, worth 15.2 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 75,838 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Government agents scour baking periodicals for subversive recipes, the government has hired out-of-work fashion designers to design purses for men, The Stolen Lands City's flashy holiday light displays can be seen from space, and dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Stolen Lands's national animal is the capybara, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Stolen Lands is ranked 29,451st in the world and 912th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,788.22 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
