The Queendom of Laikantar is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alyah Kaoru Mahana De Isha with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.174 billion Laikantarians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyssana. The average income tax rate is 84.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Laikantarian economy, worth 132 trillion Graals 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 112,630 Graals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, the only thing slower than the economy is the exchange where it's managed, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laikantar's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Laikantar is ranked 13,089th in the world and 333rd in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 53.84 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
