The Earthly Paradise of Laynekraine is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister K with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.239 billion Kostyniuks 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lviv. The average income tax rate is 58.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laynekrainean economy, worth 938 trillion Hryvnias a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,592 Hryvnias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, a murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career, Air Laynekraine is rumored to receive more government funding than the Laynekrainean Air Force, and flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laynekraine's national animal is the Laynekrainian Sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Laynekraine is ranked 47,755th in the world and 2,294th in Balder for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 58.7 Effective Tax Rate.
