The Commonwealth of New Lakemba is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Committee with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 10.431 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 enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, 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 2,679 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 256,908 New Lakembian Standard Kebabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of New Lakemba's radio stations, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation. Crime is totally unknown. New Lakemba's national animal is the Animal Kingdom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Lakemba is ranked 150,003rd in the world and 8,111th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.73 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
