The United Kingdoms of The Lancerian Empire is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen-Empress Amelia with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.582 billion Lancerians 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 medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint-Cyr. The average income tax rate is 45.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lancerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,152 trillion Metens a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,242 Metens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, the nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, Queen-Empress Amelia is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, and politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence. Crime is totally unknown. The Lancerian Empire's national animal is the Percheron Horse, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Lancerian Empire is ranked 26,637th in the world and 1,308th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 94.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
