Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Lanteans of Apaelas is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Captain Geretier with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, parental licensing program, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, devout population of 8.746 billion Lanteans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caelestia. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The Apaelasian economy, worth 666 trillion obscure ancient devices 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 mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Information Technology. Average income is 76,240 obscure ancient devices, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Apaelas, unascended beings deemed dangerous to the public are shot and hanged by the town hall as a warning to others, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apaelas's national animal is the unascended being, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ascension.

Apaelas is ranked 472nd in Lazarus and 10,636th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 35.639 Net Tourists per hour.
