The Red and Gold Republic of Llorens is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Sofia Vusmein with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.087 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, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. 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 1,487 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 major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 183,996 llorenÁs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Llorenian language, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. 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 109,483rd in the world and 143rd in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Black Market, with 78.5 billion Standard Monetary Units.
