Population1.004 billion


The Commonwealth of Lakemoor is a massive, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.004 billion Lakemoorians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Lakemoorian economy, worth 9.35 trillion Francs 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 9,312 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young people suspect their parents might be a little bit stupid, vote-counting is replacing kitchen patrol as the least glamorous army work, the Lakemoorian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, and the latest superhero movie features a caped Fox with adamantium claws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lakemoor's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lakemoor is ranked 176,409th in the world and 9,103rd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 65.89 Years.
