The Red and Gold Republic of Llorens is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Sofia Vusmein with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.056 billion Llorenians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zexaro. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Llorenian economy, worth 984 trillion llorenÁs 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 mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 162,591 llorenÁs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, the nation's biggest export is stupidity, criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, and there's a lot of babies crying for milk in the middle of the day. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Llorens's national animal is the loquito, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Llorens is ranked 51,757th in the world and 129th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Extreme, scoring 23.75 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
