The Democratic Republic of Laval is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Edwards with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.319 billion Lavalians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Commerce and Healthcare are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halifax. The average income tax rate is 79%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, and loans are available for students from poor families. Crime is totally unknown. Laval's national animal is the Seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its currency is the Levi.

Laval is ranked 34th in Taijitu and 62,713th in the world for Most Average, scoring 851 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
