The Blue World Empire of Lamelandia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Rammus with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.723 billion Lamelandians 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 Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alena. The average income tax rate is 4.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lamelandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,259 trillion Lemurs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 163,028 Lemurs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. Crime is almost non-existent. Lamelandia's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is derpism.

Lamelandia is ranked 6,111th in the world and 314th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 466.21 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
