The Lizard Democratic Community of Lavand is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Zinita Masakoth with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.713 billion Lavanders 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Reliquia 'D Cruseiro. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lavander economy, worth 268 trillion Blastar King Thinkers 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. 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 an impressive 156,538 Blastar King Thinkers, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

To say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive, state officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Zinita Masakoth's portrait, the government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, and scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lavand's national animal is the Neo Dinosaur, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Kemetism.

Lavand is ranked 136,247th in the world and 5,916th in Osiris for Most Income Equality, scoring 11.26 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
