The Queendom of Laikantar is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alyah Kaoru Mahana De Isha with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.874 billion Laikantarians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyssana. The average income tax rate is 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Laikantarian economy, worth 219 trillion Graals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,148 Graals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, and board shorts have replaced board rooms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laikantar's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
