The Kingdom of Lavea is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Corvina with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 1.391 billion Laveans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Narcissia. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lavean economy, worth 189 trillion livres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,566 livres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, and a new "thought police" branch is being developed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lavea's national animal is the chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wendo.

Lavea is ranked 238,651st in the world and 12,342nd in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.42 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
