The Republic of Latidonia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Consul Augustus Friedman with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.669 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Latidonia. The average income tax rate is 69.5%.

The thriving Latidonian economy, worth 193 trillion Denars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 72,616 Denars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, 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, and the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 165,530th in the world and 91st in International Democratic Union for Most Pro-Market, scoring -54.56 on the Rand Index.
