The Republic of Laropsa is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 488 million Laropsaonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lokosog. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Laropsiot economy, worth 33.9 trillion Reynoes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,384 Reynoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, a government program is underway to revitalize Laropsa's beaches, and the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laropsa's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
