The Holy Cheese Republic of Lavlakeland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Samenco Relson with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 1.214 billion Lavlakelanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rellington. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lavlakelandian economy, worth 184 trillion Lakerons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,685 Lakerons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Surprising numbers of poor people are protesting against taxing the rich, murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed, survivors of the Great Internet Flame War often recount horror stories of banhammers and DOS attacks, and churches across the land are hurriedly installing auto-tune for their choirs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lavlakeland's national animal is the holy cheese cube, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lavlakeland is ranked 103,861st in the world and 53rd in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Authoritarian, with 694.24 milliStalins.
