The United Armed Corpublic of Lanaroce is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Three well Trained Corgis In A suit with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 5.284 billion Lanaroceans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bostonterrierdale. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lanarocean economy, worth 895 trillion Knubs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 169,516 Knubs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, and evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanaroce's national animal is the Corgi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Corfuism.

Lanaroce is ranked 163,570th in the world and 6,628th in the West Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -13.83 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
