The Federation of Loktantra is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 859 million Loktantrans 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 53.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Loktantran economy, worth 65.3 trillion Rupees a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 76,005 Rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Loktantra to be bombproof, and disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Loktantra's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Loktantra is ranked 114,014th in the world and 5,757th in Osiris for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
