The Sunrise Democracy of Laisou is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by The Comrade of the People Nicholas Tsan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 965 million Laisouans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arathi. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Laisouan economy, worth 85.6 trillion Lars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 88,719 Lars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens may not "love, honor and obey" anyone except the State, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laisou's national animal is the Arathian Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Laisou is ranked 15,431st in the world and 25th in Refugia for Most Secular, with 79.01 Atheism Rate.
