The Second Allied Provinces of Laeral is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Liu Mei-han with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.68 billion Laeralites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laeralsford. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Laeralian economy, worth a remarkable 2,321 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,081 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

War vets look after war animals, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", atheist missionaries spread doubt overseas, and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. Crime is totally unknown. Laeral's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Laeral is ranked 199,296th in the world and 77th in International Democratic Union for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,583.31 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
