The Empire of Great Lungmen
“The Holy Empire of The Lung”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Empire of Great Lungmen is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 707 million Great Lungmenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Great Lungmenian economy, worth 60.1 trillion LMDS a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 85,051 LMDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Great Lungmen City for fear of causing a fuss, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, and drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Lungmen's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
