The People's Republic of Larpastan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Comrade Gerge with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.178 billion Larpastani 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Larpistanograd. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Larpastani economy, worth 148 trillion Larpis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 126,178 Larpis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Larpastan's national animal is the Large Larpistani Rabbit, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Gergeism.

Larpastan is ranked 15,891st in the world and 1st in Greater Larpistani Region for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,574.46 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
