OverviewDispatchesPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grand Empire of Laurarcor is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Nixon with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed population of 8.464 billion Laurarcorians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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, Commerce, and Law & Order. 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.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, prison visits increase substantially during election years, Laurarcor has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. 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 144th in Wysteria and 111,014th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -41 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
