Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Llorens is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Elisabeth Harland with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.239 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Llorenian economy, worth 305 trillion llorenÁs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,474 llorenÁs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, foreign despots proudly bandstand on Llorenian airwaves, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 179,488th in the world and 95th in The Leftist Assembly for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -707.82 on the Hayek Index.
