The Matriarchy of Lahmere is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Inge Aldfrith with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, cheerful population of 15.503 billion Lahmereans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anedale Harbour. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Lahmerean economy, worth a remarkable 2,881 trillion thalers 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 185,891 thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extreme political groups are outlawed, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, they who do not work shall not eat, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lahmere's national animal is the musk deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lahmere is ranked 137,277th in the world and 115th in Equilism for Largest Black Market, with 190 billion Standard Monetary Units.
