The Shogunal Margraviate of Laidir is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 15.074 billion Laidirians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Healthcare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aontacht. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Laidirian economy, worth a remarkable 6,286 trillion Florins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 417,053 Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, camera crews have accompanied conscripted dancers to film 'Marching On Ice', doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, and children play Capture the Flag and Capture the Bigtopian General Staff at summer camps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Laidir's national animal is the Hummingbird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Catholic Humanism.

Laidir is ranked 1,547th in the world and 3rd in The Free Nations Region for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 9,761.73 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
