The Queen's State of Losol is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 16.336 billion Losolians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, although International Aid, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The strong Losolian economy, worth 596 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 36,516 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 248,268 per year while the poor average 1,962, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, and Losol has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Losol's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Losol is ranked 5,645th in the world and 1st in Niamey for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 125.08 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
