The Community of Lakoneia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sigma with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.574 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 Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eurota. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lakoneian economy, worth 102 trillion witts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,041 witts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

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 32,215th in the world and 10th in Founderless for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,874.49 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
