OverviewDispatchesPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grand Empire of Laurarcor is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Nixon V with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.607 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, 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.

Students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. 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 62nd in Wysteria and 27,947th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 69 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
