The Republic of Lacetanya is a massive, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.955 billion Lacetanyans 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.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Lacetanyan economy, worth 86.9 trillion pezedas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 17,539 pezedas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, and group hugs break out during floor votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lacetanya's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lacetanya is ranked 47,411th in the world and 9th in Teremara for Lowest Crime Rates, with 70.28 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
