The State of Lanorth is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by James Reid with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.121 billion Lanorthans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wellington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Lanorthan economy, worth a remarkable 1,321 trillion Crownes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 320,629 Crownes, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

The crispy fried liver of a Lion is prized as a tasty treat by vagrants, fortified nursing homes are wracked with daily skirmishes, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanorth's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Lanorth is ranked 4,771st in the world and 1,153rd in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 15,395 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
