The Rd and Gold Rpublic of Llorens is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prsidnt Justin Vartu with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.764 billion Llornians 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, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zxaro. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Llornian economy, worth a remarkable 2,201 trillion gold bars 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 204,511 gold bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and there are no more heroes any more. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 404th in the world and 2nd in The Leftist Assembly for Most Beautiful Environments, with 6,247.39 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
