Population522 million


The Republic of Landestian is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 522 million Landestianians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 33.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Landestianian economy, worth 21.5 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,195 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, there's no such thing as bad publicity, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Landestian's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Landestian is ranked 49,818th in the world and 2,918th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.8 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
