The Holy of New Lakemba is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Committee with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.488 billion New Lakembans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Canberra. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient New Lakemban economy, worth a remarkable 4,772 trillion New Lakembian Standard Kebabs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 308,123 New Lakembian Standard Kebabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime is totally unknown. New Lakemba's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Lakemba is ranked 386th in the world and 18th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 31,806.52 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
