The Arcturian Republic of Lorrana is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Shona Durs with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.396 billion Lorranians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lorrana City. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Lorrani economy, worth 77.4 trillion nivers 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 mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Tourism. Average income is 55,473 nivers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shona Durs can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, ghost regiments exist only on paper, Lorranians believe manners maketh the leader, and endangered species face obesity instead of extinction. Crime is well under control. Lorrana's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is None.

Lorrana is ranked 21,061st in the world and 1,134th in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,953.38 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
