The Red and Gold Republic of Llorens is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Justine Vartu with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.489 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, socially-minded, outspoken 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 2,129 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 202,998 llorenÁs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Zexaro Loquitos' triumph against long odds, the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 580th in the world and 7th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 910.01 Bank.
