The Kingdom of Laertese is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its public floggings, avowedly heterosexual populace, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 441 million Laerteseans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lynxeaux. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Laerteseanne economy, worth 44.6 trillion Lynxes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 101,050 Lynxes, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Education is transforming people into first-rate snobs, the government has completely eliminated all childcare programs, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and contestants on Laertese's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laertese's national animal is the Great White Lynx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Laertese is ranked 32,812th in the world and 5th in Fascist Confederacy for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 4,054.49 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
