The Republic of Lacetanya is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Council Leader AdriÓ Bosc with a fair hand, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.525 billion Lacetanyans 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, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Raval. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Lacetanyan economy, worth 132 trillion Pezedas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 17,555 Pezedas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, gift hampers filled with delicious beef jerky are sent to newly communist nations, primary candidates are replaced if they fail to compliment Council Leader AdriÓ Bosc's hair, and some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lacetanya's national animal is the Roe deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Aramet Order of Catholicism.

Lacetanya is ranked 59,573rd in the world and 9th in Teremara for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,770.38 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
