FaithUnknowing and Uncaring


The Republic of Landarath is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Firstizen with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.116 billion Landarathians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dennia. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Landarathian economy, worth 509 trillion Linuses a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 123,681 Linuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, the housing market has collapsed like an overbaked Brancalandian souffle, edutainment video games are taking Landarath's students to the next level, and grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Landarath's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unknowing and Uncaring.

Landarath is ranked 3,403rd in the world and 8th in Sonindia for Best Weather, with 348 Meters Of Sunlight.
