The Republic of Laurvier is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 7.371 billion Laurvierians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 37.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Laurvierian economy, worth 276 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Cheese Exports, Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 37,445 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laurvier's national animal is the Rhino.

Laurvier is ranked 47,133rd in the world and 1,972nd in Osiris for Highest Economic Output, with 276 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
