The Dictatorship of Langan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Jose Alvarez with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, enslaved workforce, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.218 billion Langanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tentran. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.7%.

The thriving Langanian economy, worth 110 trillion pesos a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 90,637 pesos, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

There's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, anyone dissenting from the state ideology is declared "mentally ill" and whisked away in a straitjacket, and the act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Langan's national animal is the bear and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Langan is ranked 196,330th in the world and 1,219th in Europe for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 21.03 Tourists Per Hour.
