The Grand Empire of Laurarcor is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Nixon with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.107 billion Laurarcorians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria Plaz. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laurarcor's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Nixon Casteri, and its currency is the Xcorvic.

Laurarcor is ranked 173rd in Wysteria and 110,623rd in the world for Most Average, scoring -943 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
