|Faith||The Cult of Reason|
The Red Lucky Socialist Republic of Lorthar is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by St Patrick with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.119 billion Lortharians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, 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 96.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Lortharian economy, worth 423 trillion gold bars 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 199,877 gold bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation has an international reputation for compassion, aspiring authors begrudgingly help proofread issue submissions (Lorthar has found 2 easter eggs), many friends and relatives of St Patrick have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches. Crime is totally unknown. Lorthar's national animal is the leprechaun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Cult of Reason.
