The Empire of Labyrnna is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Aphras Vigyls with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 20.129 billion Labyrnnans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lynna City. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The strong Labyrnnan economy, worth a remarkable 1,641 trillion Cuknas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 81,527 Cuknas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, and strategic bombers are being converted into preschools. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Labyrnna's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Labyrnna is ranked 187,337th in the world and 126th in Geopolity for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9.17 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
