Latvijas Otra Republika

Population4.148 billion

LeaderMartins Bondars


The Ethno State of Latvijas Otra Republika is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Martins Bondars with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.148 billion Latvijas Otra Republikans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Education, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riga. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.9%.

The thriving Latvijas Otra Republikan economy, worth 335 trillion Lats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is 81,002 Lats, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 306,161 per year while the poor average 14,910, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.

Martins Bondars is the self-declared God of all Latvijas Otra Republika, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and Martins Bondars's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide. 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.

Latvijas Otra Republika is ranked 18,429th in the world and 7th in Historia Novorum for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 306,161.37 Standard Monetary Units.
