Laver Island

Population7.56 billion

LeaderKing Vincent and PM Einar Grímsson

AnimalLaverian Falcon

The Rćpublík of Laver Island is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Vincent and PM Einar Grímsson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.56 billion Laverians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vulkanerborg. The average income tax rate is 42.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laverian economy, worth a remarkable 1,122 trillion Vixes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,535 Vixes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and most citizens in Laver Island are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government. Crime is totally unknown. Laver Island's national animal is the Laverian Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Laver Island is ranked 51,690th in the world and 539th in Europe for Safest, scoring 100.74 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
