The Empire of Lasvel is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kanzler Leopold with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 3.488 billion Lasvelians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosales. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lasvelian economy, worth 517 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 148,350 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Taxpayers receive expenditure reports from the Grand High Poobah of the Order of Violet, concussed Eagleball players cannot remember their lineup position, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, and engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lasvel's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Idolatrism.

Lasvel is ranked 227,606th in the world and 190th in Lands End for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.2 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
