The Epistocratic Meritocracy of United Latin American States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mother Jozefina Safira Venka with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, zero percent divorce rate, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.202 billion Latins are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Universópolis. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Latin economy, worth 209 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,393 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Latin American States's national animal is the Schwarz Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

United Latin American States is ranked 183,107th in the world and 5,757th in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 48.6 Whatever.
