The Republic of Lationna is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Barski with a fair hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.838 billion Lationnans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Roost. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lationnan economy, worth 229 trillion Feathers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 124,939 Feathers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, and Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lationna's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lationna is ranked 8,179th in the world and 447th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 111,679.02 Standard Monetary Units.
