The Second Allied Provinces of Laeral is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Liu Mei-han with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.023 billion Laeralites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laeralsford. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Laeralian economy, worth a remarkable 1,803 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 179,943 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, third world countries are rich in "I Love Laeralsford" t-shirts, and escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails'. Crime is totally unknown. Laeral's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Laeral is ranked 9,468th in the world and 30th in International Democratic Union for Highest Economic Output, with 1,803 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
