The Republic of Laneria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by George Arthur with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.544 billion Lanerians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Law & Order, although Industry, Education, and Defense are also considered important, while Social Policy and Healthcare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Williamsburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The all-consuming Lanerian economy, worth 401 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 72,402 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

It is said that a Lanerian woman's work is never done, annual government budgets include a sizeable spend on "making things look fabulous", citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em", and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Laneria's national animal is the bald eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Laneria is ranked 172,580th in the world and 35th in Western Atlantic for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 936.39 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
