The Free Lands of Lothlorien

The Commune of The Free Lands of Lothlorien is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Yakashama with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.725 billion Lothlorieners enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amasakaya. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Free Lothlorien economy, worth a remarkable 2,099 trillion Dulvas 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 215,871 Dulvas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rocket boots and thermal detonators have become standard-issue military gear, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to President Yakashama's wardrobe, The Free Lands of Lothlorien has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, and the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Free Lands of Lothlorien's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Progress.

The Free Lands of Lothlorien is ranked 97,928th in the world and 110th in Spiritus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,153.2 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
