The Dominion of Lorthos is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 354 million Lorthosians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Haven. The average income tax rate is 52.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Lorthosian economy, worth 27.4 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,433 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lorthos's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Lorthos is ranked 41,770th in the world and 26th in Kavonia for Most Developed, scoring 70.5 on the Human Development Index.
