The Grand Empire of Laurarcor is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Nixon V with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.574 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.

Referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, religious education is a new government priority, and the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines. 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 31st in Wysteria and 1,215th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 230 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
