The Please validate me as funny of Captain Lard is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President George W Bush with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.403 billion Lardlings are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Als Toy Barn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.5%.

The frighteningly efficient AWESOME economy, worth 608 trillion The firstborn sons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 253,141 The firstborn sons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,273,318 per year while the poor average 28,126, a ratio of 45.3 to 1.

Colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, nuclear reactors are held together with party string and Hubba Bubba, and families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Captain Lard's national animal is the Jesus of Nazareth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The gospel of James Charles.

Captain Lard is ranked 173,262nd in the world and 165th in Lardyland for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -26.46 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
