The Grand Empire of Laurarcor is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Nixon with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.264 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 Education. 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.

Only toddlers and the elderly watch television before 23:00, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. 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 137th in Wysteria and 109,125th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -258 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
