The Kingdom of Lanwa is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working population of 317 million Lanwans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 36.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Lanwan economy, worth 18.5 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 58,216 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
Songs in 4/4 time are simply too common for the musical cognoscenti, taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanwa's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
