The Sunrise Democracy of Laisou is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Comrade of the People Nicholas Tsan with an even hand, and renowned for its feral children, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 913 million Laisouans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arathi. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Laisouan economy, worth 78.9 trillion Lars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 86,465 Lars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Laisouan radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, and in a baffling press conference The Comrade of the People Nicholas Tsan proudly dismantled a broken door. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laisou's national animal is the Arathian Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Laisou is ranked 239,631st in the world and 186th in Refugia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -16.67 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
