Lux Conos

Population274 million



The Colony of Lux Conos is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 274 million Conosians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brithyll. The average income tax rate is 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lux Conosian economy, worth 18.2 trillion Trout a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 66,291 Trout, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, and torture is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lux Conos's national animal is the Trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Lux Conos is ranked 134,589th in the world and 6,406th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.5 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
