LeaderJosephine Alvarez


The Federation of Lauchenoiria is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Josephine Alvarez with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.939 billion Lauchenoirians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buttercity. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lauchenoirian economy, worth a remarkable 1,038 trillion pesos a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 130,837 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recognizing the Lauchenoirian flag qualifies you for citizenship, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Lauchenoirian language, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lauchenoiria's national animal is the butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Lauchenoiria is ranked 2,387th in the world and 13th in International Democratic Union for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,395.24 Tourists Per Hour.
