The Longmouth Lowland University of Llu is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dean Tyson with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.241 billion Lluans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Dean's Residence. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lluan economy, worth 244 trillion Dining Credits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,523 Dining Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Llu's national animal is the Zokor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Llu is ranked 146,697th in the world and 223rd in Forest for Most Pro-Market, scoring 30.33 on the Rand Index.
