The Three panels of Lasgana island is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jim Davis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its lack of airports, ritual sacrifices, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.139 billion Lasgana islandianders are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whatever city Garfield lives in. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient garfieldian economy, worth 743 trillion Garfieldgo coins a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 236,933 Garfieldgo coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', school uniforms are compulsory, Jim Davis has a wardrobe full of fake designer suits, and it's best not to ask what goes into Whatever City Garfield Lives In Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lasgana island's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Garfieldism.

Lasgana island is ranked 144,426th in the world and 5,074th in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 36.76 Years.
