The Colony of Lapis Lazului is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its public floggings, triple-decker prams, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 306 million Lapis Lazuluians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Homeworld. The average income tax rate is 16.1%.

The strong Lapis Lazuluian economy, worth 18.4 trillion Crystal gems a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 60,264 Crystal gems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and Lapis Lazuluian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lapis Lazului's national animal is the Corrupted Gem.

Lapis Lazului is ranked 175,884th in the world and 12th in LCMS Bobcats for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 108.61 Tourists Per Hour.
