The Empire of Livontia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 215 million Livontians 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.0%.
The thriving Livontian economy, worth 16.2 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 75,553 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 213,656 per year while the poor average 21,371, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.
Historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre, deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Livontia's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
