The Dominion of Latorik is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Lord-General Sotorak with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 802 million Latorikians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Vein. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.7%.

The very strong Latorikian economy, worth 110 trillion Leks a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,605 Leks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 708,139 per year while the poor average 14,604, a ratio of 48.5 to 1.

Eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Latorik's national animal is the Land Crab, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Latorik is ranked 240,068th in the world and 7th in Confederation of the Mediterranean for Best Weather, with -50 Meters Of Sunlight.
