|Leader||President Liu Mei-han|
The Allied Provinces of Laeral is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Liu Mei-han with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.085 billion Laeralites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laeralsford. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Laeralian economy, worth a remarkable 1,483 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,464 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
People are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, and couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material'. Crime is totally unknown. Laeral's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
