The Matriarchy of Lunderfrau is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Kaiserin Elise VonStrauss with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 8.321 billion Lunderfrausians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laubenhugel. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Lunderfrauasian economy, worth 591 trillion Lilimarks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Soda Sales, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,052 Lilimarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling, Kaiserin Elise VonStrauss's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lunderfrau's national animal is the Barn Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lunderfrau is ranked 30,828th in the world and 4th in Greater Olympus for Most Patriotic, with 25.18 Flags saluted per person per day.
