The United States of Remand Lan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jonathan Lau with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.526 billion Remand Lanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jonathan City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.2%.

The all-consuming Remand Lanian economy, worth 182 trillion Hong Kong Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 119,317 Hong Kong Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 357,952 per year while the poor average 31,066, a ratio of 11.5 to 1.

War criminals are given full state funerals, photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Jonathan Lau, it turns out that money can buy you happiness, and cub scouts are being asked to hand in their woggles as the state withdraws funding for scouting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Remand Lan's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Remand Lan is ranked 9,214th in the world and 477th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 121.09 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
