The Red and Gold Republic of Llorens is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Justine Vartu with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.22 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. 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 2,779 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 amazing 210,285 llorenÁs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, recognizing the Llorenian flag qualifies you for citizenship, the nation leads The Leftist Assembly in per capita stalking, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. 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 57,412th in the world and 128th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Extreme, scoring 29.01 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
