The Kingdom of Lang is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Rachel with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 2.027 billion Langishes 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cidae. The average income tax rate is 62.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Langian economy, worth 205 trillion Formicidaes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 101,535 Formicidaes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Moonshine has made a resurgence, posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables, garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', and the nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lang's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Dragons of Old.

Lang is ranked 32,582nd in the world and 1,695th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,999.93 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
