The Commonwealth of Laan is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.623 billion Laanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, Laan's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laan's national animal is the Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Commonwealth Dollar.

Laan is ranked 111th in 10000 Islands and 6,864th in the world for Safest, scoring 428.8 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
