The People's Commonwealth Empire of Laykeria is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Eternal El Presidente Thomas Degurechaff with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, soft-spoken computers, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 849 million Laykerians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia City. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laykerian economy, worth 129 trillion Laykeriis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 152,841 Laykeriis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', and an endless multinational bureaucracy connects the Red Bloc. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laykeria's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Laykeria is ranked 54,589th in the world and 334th in 10000 Islands for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 72.13 Workforce Participation Rate.
