The Oligarchic Federation of Laporter is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Chairman Boris Heelman with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.581 billion Laportians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Charles. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Laportian economy, worth 881 trillion Laportian Credits 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 extensive. Average income is an impressive 157,964 Laportian Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

The impoverished sick hang around outside golf clubs to beg for funding for healthcare, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, you need a signed affidavit from a registered psychiatrist to claim that you have crazy low prices, and judges are rumored to find in favor of whoever bribes them the most. 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 Capitalism - The Cult Of Money.

Laporter is ranked 5,478th in the world and 269th in Lazarus for Most Secular, with 97.49 Atheism Rate.
