The Free Land of Lanlanland is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 449 million Lanlandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 84.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Lanlanlandian economy, worth 20.9 trillion deniers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is 46,600 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions of deniers are being poured into a space program, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, and tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanlanland's national animal is the badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lanlanland is ranked 196,535th in the world and 8,597th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.08 Obesity Rate.
