The United Provinces of El Lazaro is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Emanuel Arce Sequeira with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.397 billion Lazarenes are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Lázaro. The average income tax rate is 28.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lazarene economy, worth 485 trillion rеals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 202,679 rеals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Common misteaks slip threw as the Issues Editing Team adds issues by the hundread (El Lazaro has found 2 easter eggs), criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, and there is a growing belief that mothers love their children more than fathers. Crime is totally unknown. El Lazaro's national animal is the quetzal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lazarene Catholicism.

El Lazaro is ranked 96,736th in the world and 78th in Spiritus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,821.59 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
