The Community of Lainons is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by everyone with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.651 billion Lainons are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyberia. The average income tax rate is 63.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Wired economy, worth 90.8 trillion Brouzoufs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Soda Sales, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 54,987 Brouzoufs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is giving peace a chance, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, no one is worried about government policies any more, and most people suffer from some form of hearing loss. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lainons's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Lain.

Lainons is ranked 92,849th in the world and 28th in Libertarian Socialist Confederation for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
