The Layaqua of Pioneer Pool is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The City Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.489 billion Layaquene live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lane Pools. The average income tax rate is 32.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Layaq economy, worth 567 trillion Layaq Flimnyas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 162,786 Layaq Flimnyas, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, the election for The City Council's office's janitor is heating up, children as young as eight can be found working in factories, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pioneer Pool's national animal is the Swimming Instructor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Life Guardiasm.

Pioneer Pool is ranked 204,977th in the world and 47th in Bradania for Safest, scoring 5.89 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
