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 compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 8.046 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 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Lusitanian economy, worth 558 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 69,363 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 the all-pervasive 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 26,941st in the world and 49th in International Democratic Union for Most Developed, scoring 76.14 on the Human Development Index.
