Lords Land

Population206 million

AnimalImperial Eagle

The Holy Empire of Lords Land is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its public floggings, lack of airports, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 206 million Lords Landians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 41.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Lords Landian economy, worth 11.8 trillion Thalers a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,477 Thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', women are reassured that they're being oppressed for their own good, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lords Land's national animal is the Imperial Eagle.

Lords Land is ranked 130,798th in the world and 5th in The Fortnite island for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 33,394.66 Standard Monetary Units.
