The Democratic Republic of Las Puentes is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Lion population. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 247 million Las Puentesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 44.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Las Puentesian economy, worth 10.8 trillion Fuentes a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,728 Fuentes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, the 'sing-a-long with Leader' album is a popular souvenir, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Las Puentes's national animal is the Lion.
