The Community of Lakoneia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its burgeoning fox population. The compassionate, devout population of 317 million 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 45.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Lakoneian economy, worth 12.4 trillion witts a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Soda Sales, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,078 witts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A commonwealth of equal nations recognises that Lakoneia is a bit more equal than the others, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, and a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Lakoneian politicians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 207,660th in the world and 72nd in Founderless for Largest Black Market, with 12.2 billion Standard Monetary Units.
