The Democratic States of Loeje is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 583 million Loejeans 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Loejean economy, worth 17.8 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 30,507 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, and prison visits increase substantially during election years. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Loeje's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Loeje is ranked 34,901st in the world and 1st in The House of Prayer for Largest Governments, scoring 21 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
