The Federation of Lauchenoiria is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Josephine Alvarez with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.529 billion Lauchenoirians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buttercity. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lauchenoirian economy, worth 873 trillion pesos a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,805 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, vaccinations are mandatory, and strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lauchenoiria's national animal is the butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Lauchenoiria is ranked 138,301st in the world and 64th in International Democratic Union for Most Pro-Market, scoring 34 on the Rand Index.
