Lettsago

The Federation of Lettsago is a large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 99 million Lettsagoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Lettsagoan economy, worth 2.42 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is 24,409 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Turtleball fields, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, it is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lettsago's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Lettsago is ranked 61,040th in the world and 2,709th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 74.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
