The Democratic People's Republic of Lardsburg is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bob Sanders with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.726 billion Lardsburgians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lardsburg. The average income tax rate is 54.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Lardsburgian economy, worth 202 trillion Lards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,104 Lards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, epileptic patients switch their medications to whichever has a 'buy one get one free' offer, a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, and the moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lardsburg's national animal is the Pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
