The Earthly Paradise of Laynekraine is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister K with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, aversion to nipples, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.752 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sylvan Lake. The average income tax rate is 44.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Laynekrainean economy, worth 712 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 123,920 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, and Laynekrainean tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laynekraine's national animal is the silver fanged carnivorous caribou, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Laynekraine is ranked 107,404th in the world and 5,184th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 19.07 on the Hayek Index.
