The Red and Gold Republic of Llorens is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Fraser Zilberschlag with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.031 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, outspoken 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 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Llorenian economy, worth 584 trillion llorenÁs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 145,038 llorenÁs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million llorenÁs of property damage, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Zexaro Times is sold out, organ donation rates have hit a new low, and school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment. 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 22,803rd in the world and 50th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 232.61 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
