The Red and Gold Republic of Llorens is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Justine Vartu with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.562 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, 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 1,870 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 195,595 llorenÁs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, and bike rage is all the rage. 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 220,344th in the world and 515th in The Leftist Assembly for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1221.49 on the Hayek Index.
