The Federation of Lapod is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Michiru Krerzhurk with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 11.168 billion Lapodians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Центр. The average income tax rate is 90.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lapodian economy, worth a remarkable 1,083 trillion Rubles a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,985 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, Lapodian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, and a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lapod's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lapod is ranked 197,827th in the world and 29th in United Nations UN for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -5.29 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
