The Democratic Republic of Laval is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Edwards with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.447 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 concentrates mainly on Education, although Commerce and Healthcare are on the agenda. 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.

Citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, loans are available for students from poor families, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. 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 12th in Taijitu and 11,219th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 227 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
