The Anuracult of Lily Pad Nation is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lily the Pad with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 4.518 billion Lily Padians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pond Drop. The average income tax rate is 72.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Lily Pad Nationian economy, worth 680 trillion Coppers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,626 Coppers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

It isn't only obsequious grandees who produce a lot of manure at state occasions, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Pond Drop, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and bungee jumpers rarely go splat. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lily Pad Nation's national animal is the Frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Frog Popeism.

Lily Pad Nation is ranked 176,933rd in the world and 6,614th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.61 Obesity Rate.
