The Dominion of Lazarene Ryccia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Governor-General Alice Wenningsworth with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 6.783 billion Lazarene Ryccians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Juno. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lazarene Ryccian economy, worth 403 trillion Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 59,464 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens spend millions on microtransactions to feed virtual orphans while actual orphans starve overseas, priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, the state subsidizes liposuction, and international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Lazarene Ryccia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lazarene Ryccia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lazarene Ryccia is ranked 181,541st in the world and 5,544th in Lazarus for Most Inclusive, scoring 92.89 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
