Rad Lads

Population1.427 billion

LeaderMinister FunBoi


The Most Serene Republic of Rad Lads is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Minister FunBoi with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.427 billion Rad Ladsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ladisia. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rad Ladsian economy, worth 179 trillion Memes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 126,039 Memes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has dismantled its entire WMD arsenal, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, voting is voluntary, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Minister FunBoi's wardrobe. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rad Lads's national animal is the Okapi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rad Lads is ranked 199,758th in the world and 8,709th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -403.14 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
