The Republic of Lanfang- is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lydia Lin Hua with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.429 billion Lanfangese enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wanjin. The average income tax rate is 39.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lanfangese economy, worth 192 trillion Lanfang dollars a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 56,156 Lanfang dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

You can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, Lanfang- has designated Wanjin as its capital city, and Prime Minister Lydia Lin Hua has just been declared ruler of Lanfang- in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanfang-'s national animal is the Orangutan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lanfang- is ranked 47,623rd in the world and 14th in Geopolity for Most Politically Free, scoring 76.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
