Lurklife 19

Population706 million


The Colony of Lurklife 19 is a huge, pleasant nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 706 million Lurklife 19ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 12.5%.

The strong Lurklife 19ian economy, worth 34.2 trillion guilders a year, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is 48,468 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, the government has adopted a more thrifty attitude to administrating the country's needs, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and citizens who use the word "Violet" incorrectly find their WhoTube content taken down. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lurklife 19's national animal is the giraffe.

Lurklife 19 is ranked 176,782nd in the world and 1,511th in Devide by Zero for Highest Drug Use, scoring 39.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
