Great Lakartha

Population337 million


The Empire of Great Lakartha is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 337 million Great Lakarthans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Great Lakarthan economy, worth 14.3 trillion Kalotes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,410 Kalotes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

For just a few extra Kalotes Great Lakarthans can get new driving records with their new cars, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, and the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Lakartha's national animal is the Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Great Lakartha is ranked 121,535th in the world and 1,319th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 862.99 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
