The People's Republic of Lennonia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bob Lennon with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.075 billion Lennonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fantasia. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Lennonian economy, worth 311 trillion blings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 101,171 blings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lennonia's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
