LeaderPresident Justine Vartu


The Red and Gold Republic of Llorens is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Justine Vartu with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.569 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, liberal, outspoken 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 1,872 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 195,695 llorenÁs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, bike rage is all the rage, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, and referenda are held for every conceivable government action. 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 376th in the world and 1st in The Leftist Assembly for Most Influential, scoring 162,058 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
