The Red and Gold Republic of Llorens is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Justine Vartu with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.585 billion Llorenians 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, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zexaro. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Llorenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,877 trillion llorenÁs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 195,855 llorenÁs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, there is a dearth of space for new houses, and an endless multinational bureaucracy connects the Red Bloc. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Llorens's national animal is the loquito, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Llorens is ranked 2,422nd in the world and 17th in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Poor Incomes, with 170,954.44 Standard Monetary Units.
