The Confederacy of Lavenite is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 233 million Lavites are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Lavenitean economy, worth 6.32 trillion Golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 27,131 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lavenite's national animal is the Humming Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lavenite is ranked 35,778th in the world and 1,778th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 73.11 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
