“A faked laugh is no better than a faked smile”

Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
The Spiritan Visitor of Improvised Laughter is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its burgeoning Improv Artist population. The hard-working, democratic population of 13.607 billion Improvised Laughterians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Administration, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.8%.
The very strong Improvised Laughterian economy, worth 563 trillion Sorrowfas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Pizza Delivery, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 41,440 Sorrowfas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 120,017 per year while the poor average 11,339, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.
Small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants and a major religion has been named as Improvised Laughter's national religion. Crime is a problem. Improvised Laughter's national animal is the Improv Artist, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is a major religion.
