The Utilitarian Society of Lola Veela is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Miss Naomi with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed population of 4.1 billion Lola Veelans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snow-Town. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, punitive tariffs protect local industry, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lola Veela's national animal is the Long Tail Albino Weasel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Dollera.

Lola Veela is ranked 5th in Maranmor and 77,900th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 9 Dawkins.
