The Republic of L-453 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 586 million Lavians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 45.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Lavian economy, worth 35.2 trillion credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,064 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and a degree in Leader Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. L-453's national animal is the Lavian tree grub, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

L-453 is ranked 202,351st in the world and 2nd in Lave Alt Dump for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.58 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
