The Great Utopia of The LOL Nation is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Emperor with a fair hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, smutty television, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.765 billion LOLias love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of LOL City. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient LOL Nationian economy, worth 456 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 165,179 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorous, school children are expected to know the names of all seven hundred native tribes and their cultural practices, polite commuters on the LOL City Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, and sections of the police receive paramilitary training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The LOL Nation's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The LOL Nation is ranked 149,403rd in the world and 4,780th in Balder for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 592.49 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
