The Renegade Republic of Latte is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by F Roth with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, avant-garde cinema, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 12.777 billion Latteans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, liberal government prioritizes Environment, with Industry and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of mahkeyahtoh. The average income tax rate is 3.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lattean economy, worth a remarkable 1,860 trillion coffee beans a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 145,631 coffee beans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and both vegetables and viruses are often smuggled across the border. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Latte's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Latte is ranked 185,377th in the world and 84th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -6.32 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
