The Republic of Lotadia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Art Vandelay with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.813 billion Lotad are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Route 114. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lotad economy, worth 302 trillion WATERS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 107,642 WATERS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cars are banned, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, the nation leads the South Pacific in per capita stalking, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime is totally unknown. Lotadia's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mathematics.

Lotadia is ranked 19,482nd in the world and 668th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 77.69 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
