The Democratic Republic of Landfinia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 518 million Landons 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, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Bonk City. The average income tax rate is 37.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Landfinian economy, worth 48.7 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 94,006 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime is totally unknown. Landfinia's national animal is the Yutyrannus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Landfinia is ranked 92,913th in the world and 3,711th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 131,295 Standard Monetary Units.
