The Oppressed Peoples of Laei is a tiny, safe nation, notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 12 million Laeens enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 14.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Laeen economy, worth 872 billion East Laeen Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 72,745 East Laeen Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Major boxing matches are held in government buildings, popular political cartoonists are thrown in jail for inciting dissent, Violetist maidens who fall for an outsider must leave their violet light districts in shame, and government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laei's national animal is the Water Phoenix, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Laei is ranked 59,777th in the world and 3,250th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 65.8 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
