Lan Inton

Population1.652 billion


The People's Republic of Lan Inton is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, vat-grown people, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.652 billion Lan Intonians 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 Administration, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lan Intonian economy, worth 197 trillion Chickens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 119,391 Chickens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Lan Inton, discarded pennies litter the streets, voting is voluntary, and Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lan Inton's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lan Inton is ranked 68,290th in the world and 2,796th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 64.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
