The Kingdom of Lanwa is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.178 billion Lanwans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The city. The average income tax rate is 56.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lanwan economy, worth 88.6 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 75,214 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, only government officials may operate computers, and foreign envoys that want to visit Lanwa now have to navigate real minefields in addition to the political ones. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanwa's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lanwa is ranked 117,572nd in the world and 4,480th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 57.9 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
