The Superior Goat Nation of Lanagon is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kozel with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 21.878 billion Lanagonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lanagonia. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The powerhouse Lanagonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,473 trillion goats a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 113,060 goats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, international tensions are high as Lanagon threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanagon's national animal is the goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lanagon is ranked 236,110th in the world and 8,858th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -24.8 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
