The Free Land of Latvia and Saaremaa is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 680 million Latvians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Riga. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Latvia and Saaremaan economy, worth 97.9 trillion Lats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 143,956 Lats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 492,198 per year while the poor average 30,955, a ratio of 15.9 to 1.

The rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, parents are always up to speed on the latest childcare techniques, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of pike fish and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. Crime is totally unknown. Latvia and Saaremaa's national animal is the pike fish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Latvia and Saaremaa is ranked 215,441st in the world and 267th in Anteria for Most Primitive, scoring -157.25 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
