LeaderCurator Celise


The Republic of Lanctre is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Curator Celise with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 991 million 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calypso. The average income tax rate is 47.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lanctrean economy, worth 151 trillion Lyres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 153,115 Lyres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The Lanctrean Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, people say chess victor Curator Celise can kill you with mind-bullets, and criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanctre's national animal is the Synth-Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lanctre is ranked 13,234th in the world and 778th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 83.04 on the Human Development Index.
