LeaderMark Hastings


The Kingdom of Lanorth is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Mark Hastings with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.072 billion Lanorthans 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantine. The average income tax rate is 88.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Lanorthan economy, worth a remarkable 1,617 trillion Crownes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 318,959 Crownes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

At the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, being wrong on the internet has been classified as digital terrorism, and Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanorth's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Lanorth is ranked 239,763rd in the world and 10,015th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 6.14 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
