FaithUnknowing and Uncaring


The Republic of Landarath is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Firstizen with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.869 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 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Landarathian economy, worth 215 trillion Linuses a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,454 Linuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Landarath's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded, newspapers are running a front-page picture of Firstizen holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker, astronauts take one small step for Landarath and one giant step backward from confrontation, and meat-eating is frowned upon. 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 12,065th in the world and 30th in Sonindia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 343.65 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
