The Confederacy of Layem is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief Minister with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.298 billion Citizens 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galloway. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Layemian economy, worth 274 trillion Gold Lined Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,611 Gold Lined Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, the statue in the Zukerburg Plaza has a solar panel for a hat, and drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Layem's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic.

Layem is ranked 48,857th in the world and 14th in Confederacy of Layem for Largest Populations, with 6.30 billion Capita.
