The Republican Empire of New Lusitania and the Algarves is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Jorge Brandão with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.732 billion New Lusitanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Lusitanian economy, worth 628 trillion Escudoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,578 Escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, and the government is spending more on exports to Brasilistan than it's receiving from tariffs on the imports. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Lusitania and the Algarves's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Lusitania and the Algarves is ranked 31,597th in the world and 67th in International Democratic Union for Highest Economic Output, with 628 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
