“God, King, Empire”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
|Leader||Chancellor Philippa Lawson|
The Empire of Laurendon is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Philippa Lawson with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.209 billion Laurendonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carsen. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Laurendonian economy, worth 176 trillion Laurons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,169 Laurons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Refugees from other nations are flocking to Laurendon's border, paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, Chancellor Philippa Lawson's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laurendon's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.
