The Orwellian Nightmare Realm of Larry-Blutz is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Big Brother with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.328 billion Larryists are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip 1. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Larryist economy, worth 575 trillion Reichsblutzias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 172,804 Reichsblutzias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
First-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, the might of the entire Larryist Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, the vow 'til death do us part' is often taken as an invitation to murder, and the education system is famed for its taxing exams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Larry-Blutz's national animal is the Blutzian Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Party.
