The Most Serene Gran Duchy of Magnus Ducatus Larii is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Serenissima Altitudo Magni Ducis Larii with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, strictly enforced bedtime, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.014 billion Comaschi are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Como. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Comasco economy, worth 156 trillion Comensis Lire a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 153,930 Comensis Lire, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 658,716 per year while the poor average 23,059, a ratio of 28.6 to 1.

Employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, nations that kill a Comasco can expect a strongly worded letter, and vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Comasco mussels the biggest in Catholic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Magnus Ducatus Larii's national animal is the Deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Magnus Ducatus Larii is ranked 180,128th in the world and 55th in Catholic for Highest Drug Use, scoring 37.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
