The Democratic Republic of Lakon-oui is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Président Jacquemin with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 2.353 billion Lakonnards 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khan City. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lakon-ouian economy, worth 253 trillion lakoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,792 lakoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Internet ads promising "hot singles in your area" are even less accurate than they used to be, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, being Président Jacquemin has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, and political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lakon-oui's national animal is the Tigre, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Le vide.

Lakon-oui is ranked 21,525th in the world and 620th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,844.79 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
