The Grand Empire of Laurarcor is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Nixon I with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed population of 7.485 billion 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.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. 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 32nd in Wysteria and 42,244th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.613 Stalins.
