The Federal Republic of Lamaredia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Sebastian Braun with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.165 billion Lamaredians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wakefield. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Lamaredian economy, worth a remarkable 2,095 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 228,638 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lavish state dinners in Wakefield are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, judges are all-powerful, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lamaredia's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Lamaredia is ranked 150,375th in the world and 5,140th in Osiris for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1213.74 on the Hayek Index.
