The United Socialist States of Lantzalot is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Casey Lantz with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, national health service, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, cheerful population of 1.005 billion Lantzalotians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lantz. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lantzalotian economy, worth 103 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 102,818 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gift hampers filled with delicious beef jerky are sent to newly communist nations, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, it's surprisingly hard to find pictures of the bad haircuts from Casey Lantz's childhood, and the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lantzalot's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lantzalot is ranked 199,939th in the world and 1,967th in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -15.3 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
