The Confederacy of Layem is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief Minister with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.877 billion Citizens enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galloway. The average income tax rate is 39.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Layemian economy, worth 255 trillion Gold Lined Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,393 Gold Lined Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

When electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and the statue in the Banks Plaza has a solar panel for a hat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Layem's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic.

Layem is ranked 21,980th in the world and 35th in Confederacy of Layem for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,340.18 Tourists Per Hour.
