The Democratic Republic of Lapathiya is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 203 million Lapathiyans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Lapathiyan economy, worth 3.82 trillion Various Currencieses 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 18,840 Various Currencieses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, the Lapathiya Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, and the letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lapathiya's national animal is the Lapathiyan Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lapathiya is ranked 35,240th in the world and 1,739th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 27.74 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
