The Eternal Land of Loutsland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Arthur with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The compassionate, humorless population of 2.838 billion Loutslanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crescent. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Loutslandian economy, worth 458 trillion Golds a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 161,718 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, and treason is relative. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Loutsland's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Loutslandian Church.

Loutsland is ranked 102,698th in the world and 4,833rd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,512.93 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
