The Confederate States of LamTas Act is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Steven Chesmore with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.216 billion Actians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akron. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Actian economy, worth 371 trillion Lams a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,438 Lams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, being Steven Chesmore has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, and hand-to-hand combat experience is udderly essential for all dairy ranchers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. LamTas Act's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Stevenism.

LamTas Act is ranked 142,710th in the world and 44th in Grace of Gaia for Largest Black Market, with 164 billion Standard Monetary Units.
