The Federation of Lauchenoiria is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Josephine Alvarez with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.889 billion Lauchenoirians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buttercity. The average income tax rate is 86.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Lauchenoirian economy, worth 642 trillion Gold Cookies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,399 Gold Cookies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lauchenoiria's national animal is the butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Lauchenoiria is ranked 81,706th in the world and 66th in International Democratic Union for Most Income Equality, scoring 29.98 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
