OverviewFactbookPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Empire of Laurendon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Philippa Lawson with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.25 billion Laurendonians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carsen. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laurendonian economy, worth 186 trillion Laurons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 148,878 Laurons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Laurendonian weed picker are way up, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBL Governor goes house hunting, Chancellor Philippa Lawson's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, and criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laurendon's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Laurendon is ranked 138,396th in the world and 3,039th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 1.25 billion Capita.
