“Great old Eagle”

The People's Republic of Lanerfon is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, triple-decker prams, and soft-spoken computers. The quiet, industrious population of 615 million Lanerfonians 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lanerfon City. The average income tax rate is 31.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Lanerfonian economy, worth 60.7 trillion Lanzs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 98,717 Lanzs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, government doublethinkers have declared that voting is slavery, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Lanerfon City to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lanerfon's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
