The United Socialist States of Lantzalot is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Casey Lantz with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.339 billion Lantzalotians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lantz. The average income tax rate is 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lantzalotian economy, worth 232 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 99,599 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prudishness is on the way out, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lantzalot's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lantzalot is ranked 13,348th in the world and 442nd in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,317.44 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
