The United Confederation of Lazadonil is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.543 billion Lazadonillians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lathari. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lazadonillian economy, worth 898 trillion coronas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,292 coronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits. Crime is totally unknown. Lazadonil's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lazadonil is ranked 16,658th in the world and 773rd in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 137,292.28 Standard Monetary Units.
