The Commonwealth of New Lakemba is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Committee with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 11.387 billion New Lakembans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Canberra. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient New Lakemban economy, worth a remarkable 3,073 trillion New Lakembian Standard Kebabs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 269,908 New Lakembian Standard Kebabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, and weight loss clubs that guarantee losing a stone a month are talking about misplacing rocks. Crime is totally unknown. New Lakemba's national animal is the Animal Kingdom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Lakemba is ranked 208,434th in the world and 10,107th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -45.43 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
