Lost And Found

Population2.193 billion

CapitalGreat City


The Borderlands of Lost And Found is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Godfather with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.193 billion LAFians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great City. The average income tax rate is 28.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lost And Foundian economy, worth 542 trillion riksdalers 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, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 amazing 247,228 riksdalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Nine out of ten citizens of Lost And Found answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, the government is encouraging violence on television, and a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lost And Found's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lost And Found is ranked 149,742nd in the world and 5,483rd in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 1.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
