United Socialist Republics of LAN

Population15.874 billion

CapitalDragon's Nest
LeaderChairman Sebskij


The Union of United Socialist Republics of LAN is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chairman Sebskij with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, anti-smoking policies, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 15.874 billion LANians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragon's Nest. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped LANian economy, worth a remarkable 1,915 trillion Sebskijs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 120,649 Sebskijs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, people are raising their middle finger to non-digital currencies, the number of judges has tripled in recent months, and Chairman Sebskij's speeches are beloved by insomniacs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Socialist Republics of LAN's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

United Socialist Republics of LAN is ranked 240,571st in the world and 504th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -42.32 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
