The Allied States of Lorynia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 3.526 billion Lorynians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lorynian economy, worth 343 trillion Larans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,461 Larans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The well-to-do in The East Pacific are never on time for important appointments, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages, and polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lorynia's national animal is the Starling, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Elreithalyn.

Lorynia is ranked 7,313th in the world and 220th in The East Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 65.68 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
