The Holy Empire of Laurennia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by God-Emperor Olivier de Laurent with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate population of 3.986 billion Laurennians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laurenbourg. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laurennian economy, worth 475 trillion Laurins a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,387 Laurins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Political detractors refer to God-Emperor Olivier de Laurent as 'that Bigtopian puppet', hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laurennia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Merlangelism.

Laurennia is ranked 40,145th in the world and 84th in New Western Empire for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,537.76 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
