The Shogunal Margraviate of Laidir is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 17.505 billion Laidirians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Healthcare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aontacht. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Laidirian economy, worth a remarkable 7,141 trillion Florins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 407,957 Florins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,242,445 per year while the poor average 103,962, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

People who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and declaring that "some kids are just born evil" is not endearing Leader to progressive thinkers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Laidir's national animal is the Hyena, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholic Humanism.

Laidir is ranked 235,678th in the world and 449th in The Free Nations Region for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.27 bananas ingested per day.
