LeaderCurator Celise


The Republic of Lanctre is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Curator Celise with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.272 billion Lanctreans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calypso. The average income tax rate is 22.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lanctrean economy, worth 524 trillion Lyres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 160,297 Lyres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, Synth-Spider sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, and the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lanctre's national animal is the Synth-Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Psimrin.

Lanctre is ranked 40,898th in the world and 2,146th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,213.26 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
