The Principality of Lauzlin is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 322 million Lauzlinians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.6%.

The very strong Lauzlinian economy, worth 25.0 trillion Groschens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is 77,766 Groschens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 249,076 per year while the poor average 18,426, a ratio of 13.5 to 1.

A soldier's body is a temple, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Groschen battlesuits, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, and entire families are dragged into counseling whenever children fight on a playground. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lauzlin's national animal is the Double-Headed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lauzlin is ranked 64,380th in the world and 23rd in Greater Cyngland for Most Developed, scoring 61.31 on the Human Development Index.
