The Democratic Republic of Laktra is a small, genial nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers and state-planned economy. The democratic population of 45 million Laktrans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 12.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Laktran economy, worth 2.00 trillion Laktran Rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 44,538 Laktran Rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, the government spends millions of Laktran Rupees every year prosecuting spammers, and the government has completely eliminated all childcare programs. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laktra's national animal is the Frilled Dragon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Laktra is ranked 47,045th in the world and 96th in Wintreath for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 69.58 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
