Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Commonwealth of Lorthar is a massive, safe nation, ruled by General Secretary Belarrus with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.562 billion Lortharians 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belum. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lortharian economy, worth 278 trillion talers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 178,121 talers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, the Lortharian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and General Secretary Belarrus's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards. Crime is totally unknown. Lorthar's national animal is the jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Cult of Reason.

Lorthar is ranked 10,630th in the world and 565th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 192 Meters Of Sunlight.
