Location: Third Imperial Union

Regional Influence: Truckler


The Republic of The LunchTable is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Urduja with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 785 million LunchTableans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Marx. The average income tax rate is 85.8%.

The powerhouse LunchTablean economy, worth 76.6 trillion Food Stamps a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,548 Food Stamps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as LunchTableans, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, "Mad Max: Returning Again to Barrydrome" is this year's unexpected summer blockbuster, and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The LunchTable's national animal is the Antpaca-cat hybrid, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The LunchTable is ranked 218,508th in the world and 35th in Third Imperial Union for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -13 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
