The Dominion of Lacertae is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Glorious Leader Ulob Moga with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.075 billion Lacertaeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lacertae City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Lacertaean economy, worth a remarkable 1,772 trillion Lacers 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, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 250,539 Lacers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 786,906 per year while the poor average 61,076, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

Children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, Glorious Leader Ulob Moga's latest speech included a bizarre reference to MaxWow incontinence pads being 50% more absorbent than the next leading brand, people forget to eat because they are too busy singing Glorious Leader Ulob Moga's praises, and couch potatoes are considered to be model citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lacertae's national animal is the Garden Gnome, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Gnomeism.

Lacertae is ranked 39,839th in the world and 1,753rd in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 29.24 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
