The Socialist Democracy of Laurentio is a massive, genial nation, ruled by JL Viceroy with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.308 billion Laurents 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, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frennario. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Laurentian economy, worth 41.5 trillion Guaps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 12,554 Guaps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, billions of Guaps are being poured into a space program, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, and vaccinations are mandatory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laurentio's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Laurentio is ranked 153,500th in the world and 31st in Taijitu for Most Armed, with 0.17 Weapons Per Person.
