The Empire of Labyrnna is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Aphras Vigyls with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 20.55 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, 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 95.7%.

The very strong Labyrnnan economy, worth a remarkable 1,727 trillion Cuknas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 84,047 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 214,984th in the world and 93rd in Geopolity for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -306.76 on the Hayek Index.
