The United Commonwealths of Laurel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Thalia Errinwright with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, zero percent divorce rate, and smutty television. The compassionate, devout population of 17.747 billion Laurelans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Londerholm. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laurelan economy, worth a remarkable 2,553 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 143,906 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, and signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Laurel's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is deism.

Laurel is ranked 32,442nd in the world and 56th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,872.06 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
