The Republic of Latidonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Consul Augustus Friedman with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.684 billion Latidonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Latidonia. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Latidonian economy, worth 185 trillion Denars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Soda Sales. Average income is 69,241 Denars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Latidonia for fear of causing a fuss, genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, and the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Latidonia's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Freedom of religion.

Latidonia is ranked 29,170th in the world and 43rd in International Democratic Union for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,631.16 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
