Launtsopia

The Commonwealth of Launtsopia is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 36 million Launtsopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 20.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Launtsopian economy, worth 1.79 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is 49,746 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, much of Launtsopia's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, and children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Launtsopia's national animal is the wolf.

Launtsopia is ranked 43,222nd in the world and 32nd in Caer Sidi for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 11,336.85 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
