New Lousara

Population652 million


The Dictatorship of New Lousara is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 652 million New Lousarans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 30.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong New Lousaran economy, worth 56.2 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,202 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, a baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony, the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, and oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Lousara's national animal is the eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

New Lousara is ranked 122,786th in the world and 4,463rd in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 61.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
