The Kingdom of Lusitland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by This Dude with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.404 billion Lusitanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisbon. The average income tax rate is 41.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Lusitanian economy, worth 183 trillion Shields a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 131,023 Shields, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Sometimes a whole prison wing will house a single prisoner, commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, homophobia is off the menu, and where there's smoke there's the Lusitanian Forestry Department. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lusitland's national animal is the Black Pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shrek.
