Latvijas Otra Republika

Population11.512 billion

LeaderTautas tēvs


The Conceptual Anarchy of Latvijas Otra Republika is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tautas tēvs with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, aversion to nipples, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.512 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 36.5%.

The all-consuming Latvijas Otra Republikan economy, worth a remarkable 1,184 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,935 Lats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 317,344 per year while the poor average 25,776, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

90% of active duty LORAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, every workday begins with group therapy, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, and euthanasia is illegal. 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 and its national religion is Dievturiba.

Latvijas Otra Republika is ranked 183,797th in the world and 4,910th in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 532.47 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
