The Middle Nation of Lawrence is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Larry with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, disturbing lack of elderly people, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.274 billion Laurentians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laurentum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Laurentian economy, worth a remarkable 3,229 trillion Lorenzoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,744 Lorenzoes, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, citizens insist that there's no law against standing downwind when marijuana crops are burned off, there's a hole in the heart of every Laurentian city, and the sick and dying are locked in their homes with a red "X" painted on the front door. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lawrence's national animal is the Lars, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lawrence is ranked 11,287th in the world and 6th in Seinfeld for Healthiest Citizens, with 13.9 bananas ingested per day.
