The Republic of Lotadia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Art Vandelay with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.956 billion Lotad are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Route 114. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lotad economy, worth 210 trillion WATERS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 107,536 WATERS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cars are banned, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, the nation leads the South Pacific in per capita stalking, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime is totally unknown. Lotadia's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mathematics.

Lotadia is ranked 164,937th in the world and 7,399th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.16 Obesity Rate.
