The Post-Apocalyptic Monarchy of Lamaredia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King John I Lamaredia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.27 billion Lamaredian Survivors 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 government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hope. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Lamaredian economy, worth a remarkable 2,626 trillion Old Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 233,079 Old Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

King John I Lamaredia's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, and the restriction that you must be over 1.1 metres tall to ride a carnotaurus has recently been waived. Crime is totally unknown. Lamaredia's national animal is the Elken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Old World Faith.

Lamaredia is ranked 249,770th in the world and 8,303rd in Lazarus for Fattest Citizens, with 2.82 Obesity Rate.
