The People's Republic of Lyland
“From Many, One”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The People's Republic of Lyland is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 747 million Lyes 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 prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Lye economy, worth 61.9 trillion Snow Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,841 Snow Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, glamping Lyes won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lyland's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
