The Superior Goat Nation of Lanagon is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kozel with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.749 billion Lanagonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lanagonia. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The thriving Lanagonian economy, worth 879 trillion gons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 100,489 gons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, international tensions are high as Lanagon threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, and all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanagon's national animal is the goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lanagon is ranked 178th in The East Pacific and 10,658th in the world for Most Devout, scoring 49 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
