The Dominion of Latorik is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Lord-General Sotorak with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 783 million Latorikians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Vein. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.3%.

The very strong Latorikian economy, worth 106 trillion Leks a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,924 Leks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 706,005 per year while the poor average 14,155, a ratio of 49.9 to 1.

Stoogery and pratfalls are about as scathingly clever as Latorikian humor gets, Lord-General Sotorak has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, and the criminal underworld is dominated by cupcake smugglers and back-alley doughnut shops. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Latorik's national animal is the Land Crab, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Latorik is ranked 3,433rd in the world and 1st in Confederation of the Mediterranean for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 706,006 Standard Monetary Units.
