The Capital City of Luanda is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Bailiff with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, ritual sacrifices, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 18.4 billion Luandans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luanda. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Luandan economy, worth a remarkable 1,965 trillion Kwanzas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 106,799 Kwanzas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, mothers drive their college-graduate children to work, former polygamists always seem to have a huge number of visiting cousins, and the navy is hoping to hear the enemy shout "you sank my battleship!". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luanda's national animal is the Agapornis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Luanda is ranked 173,475th in the world and 13th in Absolution for Fattest Citizens, with 9.2 Obesity Rate.
