The Empire of Laurendon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Philippa Lawson with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.103 billion Laurendonians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carsen. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laurendonian economy, worth 158 trillion Laurons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 143,333 Laurons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Owning a fishing rod can cause you to be subject to military questioning, movie references are legally admissible in court, pet rocks are sold by the pound, and many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laurendon's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Laurendon is ranked 86,714th in the world and 2,379th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 158 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
