The Queen's State of Lakevale is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.037 billion Lakevaleans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The strong Lakevalean economy, worth 490 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 54,223 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 368,654 per year while the poor average 2,913, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, military funding has been stripped back, and the land is famous throughout the region for its rampant lawlessness. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Lakevale's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lakevale is ranked 186,990th in the world and 1st in El Paso for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -6.32 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
