The County of Lotarmy is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Count Gallin with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.267 billion Lotarmians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leoken. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lotarmian economy, worth 547 trillion loters a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,940 loters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, and referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lotarmy's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Lotarmy is ranked 144,471st in the world and 36th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -254.87 on the Hayek Index.
