The Layaqua of Pioneer Pool is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by zao medong with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, triple-decker prams, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 2.115 billion Layaquene 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lane Pools. The average income tax rate is 10.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Layaq economy, worth 268 trillion Layaq Flimnyas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 126,767 Layaq Flimnyas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, unemployed butchers line the streets, in government offices a hidden killer takes the lives of ministers and civil servants, and citizens are arrested for naturally producing proteins. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pioneer Pool's national animal is the instruktar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is stabbius.

Pioneer Pool is ranked 49,749th in the world and 970th in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 200.15259412448 Days.
