The Republic of Lazarian is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.768 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lazarianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,668 trillion Nationstates Standard Crellars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 190,328 Nationstates Standard Crellars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 612,162 per year while the poor average 44,820, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and nine-year-olds' chat logs are scoured for evidence of radicalization. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lazarian's national animal is the National Animal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lazarian is ranked 166,564th in the world and 153rd in Texas for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 9.59 Effective Tax Rate.
