The Commonwealth of Laan is a massive, economically powerful nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 3.822 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 91%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. 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 1,022nd in 10000 Islands and 119,443rd in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -926.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
