The Communist Alexandria of Lanorth is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kazimir Litvenenko with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.76 billion Alexandrians 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 government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kropoznetsk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Alexandrian economy, worth 375 trillion Fusean Notes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 213,446 Fusean Notes, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, school uniforms are compulsory, and election debates consists mostly of two grey suits arguing over how to best preserve the status quo. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanorth's national animal is the Black Guillemot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Lanorth is ranked 139,725th in the world and 6,923rd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 50.81 Years.
