The Imperial Commonwealth of Laureland is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Lawrence Alexander III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, digital currency, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 891 million Laurelanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 74.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Laurelandian economy, worth 125 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 140,687 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and gun-wielding criminals always wear appropriate eye and ear protection. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laureland's national animal is the crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Laureland is ranked 158,584th in the world and 198th in New Western Empire for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -17.72 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
