The Republic of Lanctre
“Vox malum. Agentium in pace.”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Republic of Lanctre is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Curator Celise with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.984 billion Lanctreans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calypso. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Lanctrean economy, worth 338 trillion Lyres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 170,850 Lyres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, and the only thing that can pin down a "superhero" is red tape. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanctre's national animal is the Synth-Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Psimrin.
