The Shogunal Margraviate of Laidir is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.592 billion Laidirians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Healthcare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aontacht. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Laidirian economy, worth a remarkable 6,729 trillion Florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 405,560 Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, the new one Florin coin also makes a handy throwing-star, and pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Laidir's national animal is the Hyena, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholic Humanism.

Laidir is ranked 241,673rd in the world and 410th in The Free Nations Region for Most Secular, with 1.55 Atheism Rate.
