The Grand Monarchy of Lonanaby is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Gay Mcgayson with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.678 billion Lonanabyians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gay City. The average income tax rate is 65.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lonanabyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,035 trillion Gaynesses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 221,322 Gaynesses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, citizens who leave the nation for work are instantly charged with treason, government spending has hit an all-time low, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lonanaby's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Gay.

Lonanaby is ranked 35,882nd in the world and 1,373rd in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,427.25 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
