The Community of Lakoneia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sigma with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.988 billion Lakonics 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eurota. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lakoneian economy, worth 203 trillion witts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,009 witts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lakoneian companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lakoneia's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lakoneia is ranked 193,500th in the world and 15th in Founderless for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.51 crimes per hour.
