Captain Lard

Population4.127 billion


The --- of Captain Lard is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.127 billion --- are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The frighteningly efficient --- economy, worth a remarkable 1,079 trillion ---s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 261,474 ---s, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,406,529 per year while the poor average 2,900, a ratio of 829 to 1.

Police nightsticks see use all day long, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, bilingual --- are viewed with suspicion, and prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Captain Lard's national animal is the ---, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Captain Lard is ranked 52,985th in the world and 1st in Lardyland for Largest Populations, with 4.13 billion Capita.
