OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Imperial Republic of Lusitanialand is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Don Zé Garibaldi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, avant-garde cinema, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.744 billion Lusitanialandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olissipo. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lusitanialandian economy, worth 810 trillion Espírito Santoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,447 Espírito Santoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, and many aides in Don Zé Garibaldi's office are known to be serial jaywalkers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lusitanialand's national animal is the Sócrates, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lusitanialand is ranked 1,634th in the world and 1st in Portugal for Most Influential, scoring 58,867 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
