The Grand Republic of Lectionstan is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Meme Lord Austen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.973 billion Lectionstanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of FreeCity. The average income tax rate is 54.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Lectionstanian economy, worth 296 trillion Zoinks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 150,202 Zoinks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, behind every local dictator is a Lectionstanian advisor whispering in their ear, many friends and relatives of The Meme Lord Austen have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and ghost regiments exist only on paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lectionstan's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Lectionstan is ranked 78,634th in the world and 4,339th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,146.79 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
