New Lusitania and the Algarves

Population5.34 billion

LeaderPresident Jorge Brandão


The Republican Empire of New Lusitania and the Algarves is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Jorge Brandão with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.34 billion New Lusitanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving New Lusitanian economy, worth 359 trillion Escudoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,270 Escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, and psychiatrists bizarrely accompany President Jorge Brandão to meetings with foreign heads of state. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Lusitania and the Algarves's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Lusitania and the Algarves is ranked 13,527th in the world and 37th in International Democratic Union for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,911.47 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
