The Merry Madness of Experimental Laboratory Psi is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Doctor Harley Pavlova with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.304 billion Psychics are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cuckoo's Nest. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Psychic economy, worth a remarkable 1,851 trillion Psi Tokens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 163,767 Psi Tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheistic refugees haven't got a prayer of being granted asylum, foreign leaders are advising that Doctor Harley Pavlova's letters must have gotten lost in the mail, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and army doctors who come under attack defend themselves by using stethoscopes like nunchaku. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Experimental Laboratory Psi's national animal is the Jolly Macaque, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Overactive Pattern Recognition.

Experimental Laboratory Psi is ranked 6,785th in the world and 6th in Realm of Unrestricted Science for Healthiest Citizens, with 17.51 bananas ingested per day.
