Lortomoramia

The Commonwealth of Lortomoramia is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 133 million Lortomoramians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 48.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lortomoramian economy, worth 8.86 trillion Moras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 66,603 Moras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Jaywalking will put an end to a family tree, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and Lortomoramia City has become the number one destination for urban exploration in 10000 Islands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lortomoramia's national animal is the Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Lortomoramia is ranked 160,271st in the world and 1,116th in 10000 Islands for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 11.18 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
