Population1.482 billion


The Commonwealth of Lyethlenora is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, soft-spoken computers, and public floggings. The compassionate population of 1.482 billion Lyethlenorans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lyethlenoran economy, worth 201 trillion sheckels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 135,882 sheckels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, L-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lyethlenora's national animal is the Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lyethlenora is ranked 7,184th in the world and 373rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.72 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
