The Incorporated States of Losiste is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.316 billion Losisteans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 57.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Losistean economy, worth 177 trillion Golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 134,793 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, lobster tastes best when it is red, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Losiste's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
