The Kingdom of Lanwa is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its teetotalling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 889 million Lanwans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The city. The average income tax rate is 57.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lanwan economy, worth 65.0 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 73,105 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anyone who so much as looks at Royalty without the proper amount of deference is jailed, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, and artists are pillars of society. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanwa's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lanwa is ranked 64,089th in the world and 2,231st in The East Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 2,030.67 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
