Fort Langlea

The Federal Republic of Fort Langlea is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its national health service, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 937 million Fort Langleans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 85.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Fort Langlean economy, worth 71.2 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,942 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Fort Langlea, parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, and almost all products in Fort Langlea are hand-crafted due to strict employment laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fort Langlea's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fort Langlea is ranked 147,153rd in the world and 820th in 10000 Islands for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 84,208 Standard Monetary Units.
