The Most Serene Republic of Laisou is a very large, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 137 million Laisouans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — is primarily concerned with Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Lai economy, worth 2.34 trillion Lars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 17,108 Lars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A vast monorail network carries people all over the country, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, and the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laisou's national animal is the Golden Sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Laisou is ranked 96,205th in the world and 38th in Refugia for Most Corrupt Governments, with 6.14 Kickbacks Per Hour.
