The Republic of Landica is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Aquila Aperta with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.83 billion Landicans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Landicarum. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Landican economy, worth 46.7 trillion Pennies a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 25,499 Pennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Landica's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Landica is ranked 56,039th in the world and 89th in The Social Liberal Union for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,981.1 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
