The Allied States of Laenadur is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.653 billion Laenadurians 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 Industry. The average income tax rate is 33.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laenadurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,056 trillion Laens 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 a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 90,637 Laens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You can tell when Laenadurians are being snarky by the fact their lips are moving, stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend, the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, and cheering flag-waving citizens don't like to think too hard about politics. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Laenadur's national animal is the goose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Laenadur is ranked 154,107th in the world and 5,038th in Lazarus for Rudest Citizens, with 40.78 Insults Per Minute.
