Loft Pain

Population1.357 billion

LeaderWinter Payne


The Rogue Nation of Loft Pain is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Winter Payne with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.357 billion Loft Painians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowfall. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Loft Painian economy, worth 155 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 114,659 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's black ops are starting to get on people's nerves, nudity is frowned upon, bike rage is all the rage, and dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Loft Pain's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Loft Pain is ranked 22,736th in the world and 2nd in Raven Brook for Most Inclusive, scoring 131.26 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
