The Republic of Laropsa is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Joey with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.006 billion Laropsaonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lokosog. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Laropsiot economy, worth 95.5 trillion Reynoes a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,905 Reynoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, and many aides in President Joey's office are known to be serial jaywalkers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laropsa's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
