The Papist Conspirators of Lagrodia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by James Maller with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, aversion to nipples, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.48 billion Lagrodians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Excidius. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Lagrodian economy, worth 348 trillion angles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,282 angles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, and autopsies often involve only cursory examination. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lagrodia's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Lagrodia is ranked 116,219th in the world and 59th in Right to Life for Most Pro-Market, scoring 42.78 on the Rand Index.
