The Federal Republic of Loringia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by PM Jagerr Norstemiterr with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.241 billion Loringians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polkburg. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Loringian economy, worth 116 trillion Palts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,120 Palts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rare steaks seem even bluer now, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, the endangered saltwater humpback ant is only seen in captivity programs, and scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Loringia's national animal is the ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ant godhood.

Loringia is ranked 25,373rd in the world and 849th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,219.76 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
