The Lansaka for Outreach Officer of Lansaka is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by President Dianne Dawson with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 810 million Lansakans 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lafa City. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lansakan economy, worth 85.3 trillion Lafas a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 105,289 Lafas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

A firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, and every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lansaka's national animal is the Cottonmouth Coral Copperhead Rattlesnake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lansaka is ranked 138,566th in the world and 2,987th in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Free, scoring 46.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
