La Mudita

Population1.113 billion

LeaderExecutor Tarkovsky


The United Socialist States of La Mudita is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Executor Tarkovsky with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.113 billion La Muditans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mifune. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming La Muditan economy, worth 138 trillion Umas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 124,356 Umas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a bright dawn ahead for La Mudita, knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. La Mudita's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

La Mudita is ranked 12,941st in the world and 724th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 83.06 on the Human Development Index.
