Regional Influence: Squire

Location: the South Pacific



Population1.979 billion



The Emirate of Lorora3 is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.979 billion Lororians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora. The average income tax rate is 92.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Lorora3ian economy, worth 225 trillion dutes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,831 dutes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, and according to the latest national census as many as two-thirds of the respondents possibly consider 'violet' their favorite color. Crime is totally unknown. Lorora3's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lorora3 is ranked 144,554th in the world and 5,686th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -260.31 on the Hayek Index.
