The Dominion of Lazarene Ryccia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Governor-General Alice Wenningsworth with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.897 billion Lazarene Ryccians 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Juno. The average income tax rate is 57.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Lazarene Ryccian economy, worth 305 trillion Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 62,403 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", it's not mass murder when the government does it, citizens spend millions on microtransactions to feed virtual orphans while actual orphans starve overseas, and priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lazarene Ryccia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lazarene Ryccia is ranked 175,439th in the world and 6,550th in Lazarus for Most Politically Free, scoring 17.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
