The Commonwealth of Lambstein is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Von Kern Kochead with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.28 billion Lambsteinians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lambsteinian economy, worth 666 trillion Juuls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 126,235 Juuls, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 471,139 per year while the poor average 23,708, a ratio of 19.9 to 1.

The revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news, the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Lambsteinian democracy, the Violet Mile now refers to the long line-ups that former death row inmates wait in as they transfer to maximum security prisons, and machine gun nests are the latest must-have gardening trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Lambstein's national animal is the Golden Oriole and its national religion is Cloutism.

Lambstein is ranked 126,020th in the world and 6,142nd in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 102.85 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
