The Fair State of Larinia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Zsoltan Miola with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.514 billion Larines love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 3,122 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 296,942 lorváks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, a massive campaign is underway to ensure the race of Larinia remains pure, a good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order, and political candidates who don't release their birth certificates are presumed to have been born in Maxtopia. 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 15,996th in the world and 238th in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 1,046.26567066732 Days.
