The Empire of Laporter is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Scarlett Bonne with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.309 billion Laportians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 Suzon. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laportian economy, worth a remarkable 1,162 trillion Charons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 159,009 Charons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, ghost regiments exist only on paper, the government regularly crumbles under the pressure of terrorists, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laporter's national animal is the Nautilus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Solar Cult.

Laporter is ranked 8,673rd in the world and 461st in Lazarus for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 28,948.77 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
