The Holy Empire of Great Louren Empire is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 72 million Great Louren Empireans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.8%.

The strong Great Louren Empirean economy, worth 3.78 trillion Louren Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 52,447 Louren Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 162,442 per year while the poor average 13,046, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, bicyclists are banned from major roads, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Louren Empire's national animal is the House cat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Great Louren Empire is ranked 154,447th in the world and 6,714th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 9.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
