The Rd and Gold Rpublic of Llorens is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prsidnt Justin Vartu with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.802 billion Llornians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zxaro. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Llornian economy, worth a remarkable 2,216 trillion gold bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 205,168 gold bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Zxaro spends billions upgrading public transport, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Llorens's national animal is the loquito, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Llorens is ranked 245,622nd in the world and 489th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 4.86 Whatever.
