The State of Labardor is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Anton Macías with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.011 billion Labardorians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Banja Luka. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Labardorian economy, worth 122 trillion Valoras a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 121,361 Valoras, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 456,129 per year while the poor average 22,541, a ratio of 20.2 to 1.

Teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough, companies balk at paying their workers, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, and nose plugs are the latest Labardorian fashion accessory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Labardor's national animal is the Phoneix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Labardor is ranked 61,024th in the world and 5th in The Wasteland Frontier for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 71.08 Workforce Participation Rate.
