The Empire of LC Land is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 557 million LC Landians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Big Land. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.1%.

The all-consuming LC Landian economy, worth 85.7 trillion Dollars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. 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 an impressive 153,879 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 547,581 per year while the poor average 31,133, a ratio of 17.6 to 1.

People often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time, the term "Native LC Landian" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, the government decides its policies by observing the flight of birds, and there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. LC Land's national animal is the Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

LC Land is ranked 230,130th in the world and 531st in Conch Kingdom for Highest Drug Use, scoring 18.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
