New Ladavia

Population9.478 billion

LeaderWilliam Kess


The Republic of New Ladavia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by William Kess with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.478 billion New Ladavians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ninvoth. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient New Ladavian economy, worth a remarkable 1,570 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 165,720 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The horniness of the great-horned Falcon is considered a national priority, schoolchildren quote interesting facts about the square of the hypotenuse, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, and the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Ladavia's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Ladavia is ranked 1,785th in the world and 29th in Forest for Most Developed, scoring 98.07 on the Human Development Index.
