The County of Lotarmy is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Count Gallin And Countess Lexie with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 7.11 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 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 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lotarmian economy, worth 743 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,632 loters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Protests are legal but strictly supervised, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, students do more community service than homework, and nephews and nieces of the monarch resort to begging from relatives in palace halls. 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 118,220th in the world and 98th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Most Extreme, scoring 16.21 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
