The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 23.2%.

The Love Lies Bleedingian economy, worth 179 trillion Candy Hearts a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing.
