The United Commonwealths of Laurel is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Protector Hannibal Errinwright with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 18.772 billion Laurelans 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, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Londerholm. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laurelan economy, worth a remarkable 2,958 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 157,620 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, fighter pilots crash out of the air after failing to understand their foreign instruction manuals, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Laurel's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is New Avalon Catholic Church.

Laurel is ranked 137,476th in the world and 2nd in United We Stand for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -1.61 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
