The Holy Empire of Lagaronians is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lagaronius Caesar with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.639 billion Lagaronians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kashashkamukashka. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Lagaroniansian economy, worth 582 trillion Dinoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 125,597 Dinoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The latest superhero movie features a caped Dinosaur with adamantium claws, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, and cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lagaronians's national animal is the Dinosaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Caesar itself.

Lagaronians is ranked 100,249th in the world and 4,142nd in Osiris for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 122.42 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
