The People's Democratic Republic of Laos is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its burgeoning Indian Elephant population. The cynical population of 21.281 billion Laosians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 41.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Laosian economy, worth 478 trillion Francoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 22,488 Francoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laos's national animal is the Indian Elephant.

Laos is ranked 69,096th in the world and 5th in Southeast Asia for Most Corrupt Governments, with 13.35 kickbacks per hour.
