The Barbatos Worshippers of Loli County is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Juno Morozov with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.442 billion Lolis 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athemont. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lolisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,371 trillion muddy puddles 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 Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 184,330 muddy puddles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Loli County's hospitals, the government offers gay men mildly offensive tips on how to pass as straight, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Loli County's national animal is the suzy sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

Loli County is ranked 4,186th in the world and 215th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 137.81 quips per hour.
