Laretia

Population1.194 billion

The Commonwealth of Laretia is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.194 billion Laretians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 54.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Laretian economy, worth 135 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 113,463 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially, Leader's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and students consistently complain that the wi-fi ate their homework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laretia's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Laretia is ranked 65,507th in the world and 2,548th in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 1,959.58 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
