LeaderCurator Celise


The Republic of Lanctre is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Curator Celise with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.727 billion Lanctreans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calypso. The average income tax rate is 29.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lanctrean economy, worth 580 trillion Lyres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,768 Lyres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, little kids often wonder why strange grown-ups are following them around the soft play areas, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lanctre's national animal is the Synth-Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Psimrin.

Lanctre is ranked 8,874th in the world and 483rd in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 108,151.07 Standard Monetary Units.
