The Irrational Empire of New Laudesia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Laud XII with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.32 billion New Laudesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.6%.

The frighteningly efficient New Laudesian economy, worth 795 trillion Sterlings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 149,593 Sterlings, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 459,777 per year while the poor average 37,625, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.

Nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, black tea is only available on the black market, and defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Laudesia's national animal is the Kamian Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Laudism.

New Laudesia is ranked 251,364th in the world and 6th in The United Ascendancy for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -23 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
