The Republic of Lazarian is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.843 billion Lazarianians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lazarianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,042 trillion Nationstates Standard Crellars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 152,394 Nationstates Standard Crellars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 462,017 per year while the poor average 39,088, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

The government is outsourcing itself, there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, and signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés. Crime is totally unknown. Lazarian's national animal is the National Animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lazarian is ranked 38,337th in the world and 94th in Texas for Most Influential, scoring 477 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
