The Commonwealth of Lambstein is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexander Mises Kuntz with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.668 billion Lambsteinians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lambsteinian economy, worth 455 trillion Juuls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 124,139 Juuls, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 363,055 per year while the poor average 33,505, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Gay men commonly complain about their time of the month, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, and the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?". Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Lambstein's national animal is the Golden Oriole and its national religion is Cloutism.

Lambstein is ranked 14,759th in the world and 689th in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 1,551.49 Prayers Per Hour.
