The Ethnostate of Latvijas Otra Republika is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Tautas tēvs with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.889 billion Latvians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riga. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.1%.

The all-consuming Latvijas Otra Republikan economy, worth 810 trillion Lats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 102,696 Lats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 331,903 per year while the poor average 24,013, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, the Forestry Department has decided you really can't fight fire with fire, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Latvijas Otra Republika's national animal is the Starkis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dievturiba.

Latvijas Otra Republika is ranked 69,574th in the world and 5th in Historia Novorum for Nudest, with 165.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
