The Republic of Latidonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Consul Augustus Friedman with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.798 billion Latidonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Latidonia. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Latidonian economy, worth 248 trillion Denars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Soda Sales. Average income is 65,323 Denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Latidonia for fear of causing a fuss, genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Latidonia's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Freedom of religion.

Latidonia is ranked 171,813th in the world and 83rd in International Democratic Union for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -4 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
