The Republic of Lavella is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 376 million Lavellans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Praia. The average income tax rate is 56.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Lavellan economy, worth 19.6 trillion Escudoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 52,020 Escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, and Lavellan husbands are dead good at fathering kids. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lavella's national animal is the Gorilla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lavella is ranked 62,212th in the world and 24th in Aster for Best Weather, with 109 meters of sunlight.
