The Free Land of Lacuna is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.05 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lacuna City. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lacunan economy, worth a remarkable 2,170 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 Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 144,186 Naughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The art of conversation has been rediscovered, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime is totally unknown. Lacuna's national animal is the Adder, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lacuna is ranked 152,695th in the world and 1,066th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -21.79 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
