The Yahlia of Laver Island is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Vincent and PM Einar Grímsson with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.772 billion Laverians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vulkanerborg. The average income tax rate is 24.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laverian economy, worth a remarkable 1,032 trillion Vixes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 152,400 Vixes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, King Vincent and PM Einar Grímsson's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and in a fit of passion King Vincent and PM Einar Grímsson has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions. Crime is relatively low. Laver Island's national animal is the Laverian Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Laver Island is ranked 45,758th in the world and 168th in Europe for Most Pro-Market, scoring 61.89 on the Rand Index.
