Lake Wostok

The Free Land of Lake Wostok is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its national health service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 167 million Lake Wostokians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 8.4%.

The strong Lake Wostokian economy, worth 10.1 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 60,604 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, rural citizens live in terror of their local village constable, folk singers have replaced personal injury lawyers in being ridiculed as "ambulance chasers", and in pet stores nationwide penguins are growing in popularity. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Lake Wostok's national animal is the penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Lake Wostok is ranked 164,408th in the world and 3rd in Below the Ice for Lowest Crime Rates, with 55.72 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
