The Schäl Veedel of Lating is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Fiese Möpp with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 12.953 billion Latingsers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gütersloh. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The all-consuming Latingian economy, worth a remarkable 1,415 trillion Fönnefs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 109,262 Fönnefs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Abortions are routinely performed in Lating's hospitals, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lating's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lating is ranked 5,135th in the world and 4th in Aeia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.31 Years.
