Litkva

The Republic of Litkva is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, cynical population of 328 million Litkvans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 13.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Litkvan economy, worth 18.6 trillion Litkvan Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,621 Litkvan Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, and teenagers claim that morning paper rounds are performance art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Litkva's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Litkva is ranked 190,127th in the world and 87th in The Free Nations Region for Most Avoided, scoring 1.77 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
