The Democratic States of Lanagon is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kozel with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.052 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Social Welfare and the Environment are secondary priorities. 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.
