The Lololol of Townsvalley is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Idiot with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.044 billion Stupid degenerates enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal government prioritizes Industry, although Administration and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Idiotica. The average income tax rate is 4.8%.

The frighteningly efficient An Idiot economy, worth 409 trillion Hektes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Retail, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 81,161 Hektes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, humble workers tempt fate for a taste of airline caviar, and the mob vote is a crucial electoral demographic. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Townsvalley's national animal is the 67, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Townsvalley is ranked 81,282nd in the world and 3,132nd in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 147,412 Standard Monetary Units.
