The Red and Gold Republic of Llorens is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Justine Vartu with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.1 billion Llorenians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zexaro. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Llorenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,733 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 190,530 llorenÁs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, sex changes are routinely performed at Llorens's hospitals, and Llorens's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. 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 208,341st in the world and 466th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -39.7 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
