The Peace of Landru

The May You Know of The Peace of Landru is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its closed borders, ritual sacrifices, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.498 billion Landruans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 56.6%.

The large but inefficient Peace of Landruan economy, worth 202 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 57,846 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, the elderly don't know who the dickens adorns the face of newly-issued banknotes, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, and five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Peace of Landru's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Peace of Landru is ranked 24,932nd in the world and 11th in Federation of Martian Colonies for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,021.89 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
