The Ethnostate of Latvijas Otra Republika is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jukums Aperzems with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.267 billion Latvians 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 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. The average income tax rate is 29.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Latvijas Otra Republikan economy, worth 725 trillion Lats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 99,854 Lats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

No suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines, innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, the judicial system legislates morality, and travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Latvijas Otra Republika flights to avoid the pay lavatories. 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 59,935th in the world and 3rd in Historia Novorum for Most Pro-Market, scoring 56 on the Rand Index.
