The Grand Duchy of Lazadian is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Duke Tybalt with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.489 billion Lazadians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talvaki. The average income tax rate is 44.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lazadian economy, worth 209 trillion Deniers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,802 Deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Days begin with afternoon tea, Lazadian tourists are banned from many nations due to their tendency to randomly explode, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lazadian's national animal is the Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lazadian is ranked 42,514th in the world and 840th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 258.85786905308 Days.
