Official State of Landland

The United Socialist States of Official State of Landland is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, digital currency, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 227 million Landlandeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 56.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Landlandish economy, worth 17.8 trillion Landlandings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 78,355 Landlandings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes. Crime is totally unknown. Official State of Landland's national animal is the Flamingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Official State of Landland is ranked 41,043rd in the world and 1,650th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,313.71 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
