The Republic of Lanctre is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Curator Celise with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed population of 1.488 billion Lanctreans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calypso. The average income tax rate is 62.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lanctrean economy, worth 248 trillion Lyres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 167,210 Lyres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, commemoration of the Great The North Pacific War costs almost as much as the war itself, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanctre's national animal is the Synth-Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Psimrin.

Lanctre is ranked 141,299th in the world and 7,226th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 6.84 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
