The Kingdom of King Lazarus is a very large, cultured nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The democratic, devout population of 189 million King Lazarusians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 19.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The King Lazarusian economy, worth 9.63 trillion Gold Bars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,927 Gold Bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The last thing King Lazarusian soldiers hear before charging into battle is a preacher trying to convert them, bike rage is all the rage, military spending is on the increase, and KL-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King Lazarus's national animal is the Lion.

King Lazarus is ranked 116,238th in the world and 4th in Lazarene Exiles for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 302.23 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
