The Empire of Free The Lagich is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Johnstallin with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.869 billion Free The Lagichians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Free The Lagich City. The average income tax rate is 85.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Free The Lagichian economy, worth 464 trillion Gold CCs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 248,339 Gold CCs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, and divorce is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free The Lagich's national animal is the Tribble, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Leaderism.

Free The Lagich is ranked 2,992nd in the world and 55th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 275 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
