The Catholic Republic of Langenia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President General Nicolas Furia with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.229 billion Langenians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Environment is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aragon. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Langenian economy, worth 188 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 153,266 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The full title of Hon President General Nicolas Furia Vcte Mgve MF CRLLM GCLE runs to several pages, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Langenia's national animal is the Imperial eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Langenia is ranked 189,226th in the world and 162nd in 21st Century Rome for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 220.79 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
