The United Kingdoms of The Lancerian Empire is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen-Empress Amelia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.748 billion Lancerians 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 medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint-Cyr. The average income tax rate is 49.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lancerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,400 trillion Metens a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,237 Metens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, Queen-Empress Amelia is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence, and snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase Queen-Empress Amelia's majority. Crime is totally unknown. The Lancerian Empire's national animal is the Percheron Horse, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Lancerian Empire is ranked 100,984th in the world and 4,532nd in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 25.09 Prayers Per Hour.
