Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Llorens is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Elisabeth Harland with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.881 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 morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zexaro. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The all-consuming Llorenian economy, worth 263 trillion llorenÁs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,001 llorenÁs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, President Elisabeth Harland is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes. 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 13,344th in the world and 29th in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Average Incomes, with 140,001.74 Standard Monetary Units.
