The Empire of Lagoonish is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 608 million Lagoonishians 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Lagoonishian economy, worth 59.0 trillion Litas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 97,072 Litas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, and board shorts have replaced board rooms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lagoonish's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
