The Republic of Lkandria is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, public floggings, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 585 million Lkandrians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gill City. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lkandrian economy, worth 65.3 trillion Slovaks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 111,599 Slovaks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bicyclists are banned from major roads, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, and politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lkandria's national animal is the Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lkandria is ranked 132,815th in the world and 116th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 766.41 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
