The Republic of New Lusitania and the Algarves is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Jorge Brandão with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.901 billion New Lusitanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 85.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Lusitanian economy, worth 636 trillion Escudoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,322 Escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 190,774th in the world and 81st in International Democratic Union for Fattest Citizens, with 8.5 Obesity Rate.
