The Empire of Pata lata is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 462 million Pata latans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 28.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Pata latan economy, worth 30.8 trillion Latas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 66,577 Latas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, and all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pata lata's national animal is the Seta.

Pata lata is ranked 11,925th in the world and 4th in Aurelius for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 77.99 Workforce Participation Rate.
