The Commonwealth of New Lakemba is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Committee with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.876 billion New Lakembans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Canberra. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient New Lakemban economy, worth a remarkable 3,255 trillion New Lakembian Standard Kebabs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 274,164 New Lakembian Standard Kebabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, and the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed. Crime is totally unknown. New Lakemba's national animal is the Animal Kingdom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Lakemba is ranked 685th in the world and 26th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 5,633.65 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
