The Republic of Lardsty is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Federal Council with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, daily referendums, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, devout population of 4.428 billion Lards are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azilibantaru. The average income tax rate is 46.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Lardstyian economy, worth 182 trillion di anbars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 41,306 di anbars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, the stock market has been destroyed for its own protection, street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, and Islam has been named as Lardsty's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lardsty's national animal is the tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Lardsty is ranked 139,074th in the world and 4,206th in Balder for Smartest Citizens, with 27.63 quips per hour.
