The Emirate of Lorora3 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.414 billion Lororians 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora. The average income tax rate is 85.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lorora3ian economy, worth 169 trillion dutes 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 119,938 dutes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Planespotters are emigrating in droves, people have become comfortably numb, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lorora3's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lorora3 is ranked 7,095th in the world and 212th in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 56.53 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
