The Republic of Laser States is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Larj with a fair hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.277 billion Laserians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of World City. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Laserian economy, worth 445 trillion Sols a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,103 Sols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, the government spends billions to protect Laser States from a disaster that is one in a million, and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laser States's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Laser States is ranked 21,424th in the world and 17th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,120.86 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
