The Federal Republic of Lanurstia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory vegetarianism, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 582 million Lanurstians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government prioritizes Industry, with Healthcare and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ikapor. The average income tax rate is 14.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lanurstian economy, worth 51.4 trillion Kors a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 88,359 Kors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, they say that Lanurstians made a dessert and called it peace, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Lanurstia's national animal is the Markhor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lanurstia is ranked 168,026th in the world and 222nd in Enadia for Most Avoided, scoring 1.14 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
