The Free Land of Loechia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Shrimpy DeShrimp with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.639 billion Loechians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loechia City. The average income tax rate is 47.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Loechian economy, worth a remarkable 1,333 trillion Novas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,412 Novas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, and war vets look after war animals. Crime is totally unknown. Loechia's national animal is the Loechian Bloodhound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Loechia is ranked 105,195th in the world and 4,309th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,479.47 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
