The Republic of Larrys Island6 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.199 billion Larrys Island6ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Larrys Island6ian economy, worth 337 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,473 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

The populace harbors a fierce hatred of the metric system, the citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, the public are free to vote for whomever the government wants in office, and kids these days know how to throw a proper punch. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Larrys Island6's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Larrys Island6 is ranked 11,085th in the world and 17th in Hendricksons for Largest Black Market, with 84.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
