The Dominion of The Layfetian Republic is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Executive Minister Spencer Hastings with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.864 billion Layfetians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nordipolica. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Layfetian economy, worth 145 trillion Rezuan Rusings 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 Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. Average income is 50,849 Rezuan Rusings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, environmental officials dismiss uncontrolled wildfires burning down major cities as nature taking its course, the derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. Crime is totally unknown. The Layfetian Republic's national animal is the Steller's Sea Eagle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Layfetian Republic is ranked 31,001st in the world and 8th in Sunalaya for Most Politically Free, scoring 78.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
