New Lusitania and the Algarves

Population10.124 billion

LeaderPresident Jorge Brandão


The Republic of New Lusitania and the Algarves is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Jorge Brandão with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.124 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 Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Lusitanian economy, worth 677 trillion Escudoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,915 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 199,902nd in the world and 88th in International Democratic Union for Most Patriotic, with 1.32 Flags saluted per person per day.
