The Democratic Republic of Lancov is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Bogdan Markovich with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 22.09 billion Lancovians 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, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Defense and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ramonosd. The average income tax rate is 10.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lancovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,569 trillion haids a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,069 haids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Torture is illegal, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and the Lancov Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Lancov's national animal is the wyvern, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lancov is ranked 14,911th in the world and 341st in Balder for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
