The Republic of Loustania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Consul Jean Prouvaire with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, daily referendums, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.714 billion Loustanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charlynople. The average income tax rate is 52.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Loustanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,244 trillion Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 231,084 Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Loustania has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, sentient AIs face their watery graves with a fixed smile, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Loustania's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Loustania is ranked 241,282nd in the world and 35th in CISB for Most Primitive, scoring -553.19 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
