The United Socialist States of Lantzalot is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Casey Lantz with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 993 million Lantzalotians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lantz. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lantzalotian economy, worth 101 trillion Dollars 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 Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 102,228 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The number of judges has tripled in recent months, stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lantzalot's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lantzalot is ranked 22,589th in the world and 325th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 79.42 on the Human Development Index.
