Lanion Mon

Population5.856 billion

LeaderEmperor Augustus I


The Holy Empire of Lanion Mon is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Augustus I with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, public floggings, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.856 billion Lanions 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mafille. The average income tax rate is 52.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Lanion Monian economy, worth a remarkable 1,082 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 184,874 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The standard prescription for infertility-causing conditions is "go have a baby", lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanion Mon's national animal is the Dingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Aldanism.

Lanion Mon is ranked 159,692nd in the world and 10th in Exodus for Safest, scoring 41.31 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
