The United Kingdom of Lannistter is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Angel III of Lannistter with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, digital currency, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.864 billion Lannishes are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Arkhangelsk. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lannish economy, worth 331 trillion LK$s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,925 LK$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, the nation leads Democratic Socialist Assembly in per capita stalking, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, and declaring that "some kids are just born evil" is not endearing King Angel III of Lannistter to progressive thinkers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lannistter's national animal is the Silver Fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Sacred Silver Fox Cult.

Lannistter is ranked 8,760th in the world and 68th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 8 valid endorsements.
