The Commonwealth of Laan is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.9 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.

Laan has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 300th in 10000 Islands and 22,834th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 23 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
