The Democratic States of Laggarashianammer is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 188 million Laggarashianammerians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 15.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Laggarashianammerian economy, worth 11.0 trillion Lags a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,748 Lags, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Laggarashianammer City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Laggarashianammer's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Laggarashianammer is ranked 95,329th in the world and 3,841st in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 42.89 on the Rand Index.
