The Commonwealth of Lawteria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Zoe Randall with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.49 billion Lawterians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haven. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lawterian economy, worth 225 trillion Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,150 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, voting is voluntary, and feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lawteria's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lawteria is ranked 248,148th in the world and 673rd in United Kingdom for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -9.9 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
