The Commonwealth of New Lakemba is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Committee with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.834 billion New Lakembans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Canberra. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient New Lakemban economy, worth a remarkable 3,241 trillion New Lakembian Standard Kebabs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 273,913 New Lakembian Standard Kebabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime is totally unknown. New Lakemba's national animal is the Animal Kingdom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Lakemba is ranked 220,424th in the world and 9,963rd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1385.99 on the Hayek Index.
