The Commonwealth of Laan is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.379 billion Laanians 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 93%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, the government is seen as openly hostile to all religion, voting is voluntary, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. 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 131st in 10000 Islands and 4,873rd in the world for Best Weather, with 177 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
