The Queendom of Laikantar is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alyah Kaoru Mahana De Isha with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.362 billion Laikantarians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyssana. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Laikantarian economy, worth 155 trillion Graals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,228 Graals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laikantar's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Laikantar is ranked 33,812th in the world and 1,126th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.15 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
