The Empire of Lassistan is a huge, genial nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 312 million Lassistanis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Lassistanian economy, worth 10.6 trillion Dinars 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. Average income is 33,979 Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lassistan's national animal is the Emu, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
