The Racism is Alive and Well of Laver Island is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Vincent and PM Einar Grímsson with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.553 billion Laverians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vulkanerborg. The average income tax rate is 47.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laverian economy, worth a remarkable 1,265 trillion Vixes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,015 Vixes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, children's daycare starts at the crack of dawn, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime is totally unknown. Laver Island's national animal is the Laverian Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Laver Island is ranked 98,202nd in the world and 515th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,451.61 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
