The Holy Empire of The Lancer is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prince William Winston with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.513 billion Lancerians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lancer City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.

The all-consuming Lancerian economy, worth 250 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 71,351 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Lancer's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Lancer is ranked 130,643rd in the world and 142nd in Texas for Highest Drug Use, scoring 30.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
