The Commonwealth of New Lakemba is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Committee with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 9.477 billion New Lakembans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. 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 2,353 trillion New Lakembian Standard Kebabs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 248,359 New Lakembian Standard Kebabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to New Lakemba as a reminder of their "special relationship", the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and the government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public. 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 615th in the world and 40th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 94.24 Years.
