The Imperial Commonwealth of Laureland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Lawrence Alexander III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.622 billion Laurelanders 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laurelandian economy, worth 264 trillion kronor a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 163,345 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, and swarms of present-laden delivery drones blot out the sun before major holidays. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Laureland's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Laureland is ranked 37,800th in the world and 58th in New Western Empire for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 71.54 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
