New Lusitania and the Algarves

Population8.463 billion

LeaderPresident Jorge Brandão


The Republican Empire of New Lusitania and the Algarves is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Jorge Brandão with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.463 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Lusitanian economy, worth 569 trillion Escudoes a year, is highly 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 67,280 Escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, and the government is spending more on exports to Brasilistan than it's receiving from tariffs on the imports. 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 152,423rd in the world and 70th in International Democratic Union for Most Secular, with 16.38 Atheism Rate.
