Lex Caledonia

Population10.698 billion

LeaderHead Minister Sulla


The Commonweal of Lex Caledonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Head Minister Sulla with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.698 billion Lex Caledonians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Falkirk. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lex Caledonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,009 trillion Smakas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 187,817 Smakas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frat-house partying has become the national pastime, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer. Crime is totally unknown. Lex Caledonia's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lex Caledonia is ranked 163,247th in the world and 47th in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -3.35 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
