The Oppressed Peoples of Neonlake is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The cynical population of 364 million Neonites are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NeonCloud. The average income tax rate is 70.0%.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Neon economy, worth 11.3 trillion Floppy Disks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,944 Floppy Disks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, Neonlake has designated NeonCloud as its capital city, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neonlake's national animal is the glow-crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Neonlake is ranked 128,382nd in the world and 6,121st in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.68 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
