New Lusitania and the Algarves

Population8.171 billion

LeaderPresident Jorge Brandão


The Republican Empire of New Lusitania and the Algarves is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Jorge Brandão with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.171 billion New Lusitanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Lusitanian economy, worth 580 trillion Escudoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,061 Escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, and the government is spending more on exports to Brasilistan than it's receiving from tariffs on the imports. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Lusitania and the Algarves's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Lusitania and the Algarves is ranked 79,363rd in the world and 70th in International Democratic Union for Most Politically Free, scoring 67.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
