The Commonwealth of New Lakemba is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Committee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 9.659 billion New Lakembans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Canberra. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient New Lakemban economy, worth a remarkable 2,418 trillion New Lakembian Standard Kebabs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 250,424 New Lakembian Standard Kebabs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Saying "don't do anything that The Committee wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, anti-government web sites are springing up, The Committee spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, and a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water. Crime is totally unknown. New Lakemba's national animal is the Animal Kingdom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Lakemba is ranked 644th in the world and 24th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 13,494.74 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
