The Empire of Free The Lagich is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Johnstallin with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.721 billion Free The Lagichians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Free The Lagich City. The average income tax rate is 82.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Free The Lagichian economy, worth 424 trillion Gold CCs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 246,532 Gold CCs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, immigrants complain that natives keep coming over and taking their jobs, and former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free The Lagich's national animal is the Tribble, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Leaderism.

Free The Lagich is ranked 10,727th in the world and 309th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 85.8 on the Human Development Index.
