The Superior Goat Nation of Lanagon is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Kozel with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.343 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lanagonia. The average income tax rate is 97%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, 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, and international tensions are high as Lanagon threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, and its currency is the gon.

Lanagon is ranked 4,160th in The East Pacific and 117,812th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -9 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
