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 multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.423 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, 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 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Llorenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,068 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 significant contributions from Information Technology and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 166,411 llorenÁs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

They say that Llorenians made a dessert and called it peace, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, and the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play. 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 2,279th in the world and 10th in The Leftist Assembly for Smartest Citizens, with 160.61 Quips Per Hour.
