The Seylosian Crown Dependency of Llalta is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Eve Gallaghan with a fair hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.13 billion Llaltese 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, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Christopher. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Llaltese economy, worth 195 trillion Llaltese Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,393 Llaltese Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. Crime is totally unknown. Llalta's national animal is the Seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Llalta is ranked 166,279th in the world and 99th in Eurth for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -91.29 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
