The Commonwealth of Laan is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 3.859 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.

Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. 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 509th in 10000 Islands and 51,663rd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 72 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
