The Fair State of Larinia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zsoltan Miola with a fair hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.237 billion Larines are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nyinkormänok. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Lariny economy, worth a remarkable 2,632 trillion lorváks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 284,959 lorváks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, policy reversals are more often graceful demi-détournés than u-turns, and few that venture into government archives are ever seen again. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Larinia's national animal is the Alicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Larinia is ranked 171,194th in the world and 6,416th in Lazarus for Fattest Citizens, with 0.98 Obesity Rate.
