The Queendom of Lori Rica is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 478 million Lorians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Queenston. The average income tax rate is 19.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Lorian economy, worth 29.2 trillion Diamonds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 61,086 Diamonds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

A video of Leader wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients, and women don't report crimes to the emergency services for fear of being arrested. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lori Rica's national animal is the Kitten, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lori Rica is ranked 49,743rd in the world and 97th in First World Order for Highest Poor Incomes, with 38,090.66 Standard Monetary Units.
