The Last Bastion of Civilization of Lacuna is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 21.154 billion Lacunians 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lacuna City. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lacunan economy, worth a remarkable 3,144 trillion Naughts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 148,629 Naughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Leader is a silly poophead, families burn Leader's latest official photograph to keep warm, and a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted. Crime is totally unknown. Lacuna's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lacuna is ranked 398th in the world and 14th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 47,698.42 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
