The County of Lotarmy is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Count Gallin with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.716 billion Lotarmians 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, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leoken. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lotarmian economy, worth 486 trillion loters a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,192 loters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's no such thing as bad publicity, some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, and owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lotarmy's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Lotarmy is ranked 163,823rd in the world and 74th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -249.97 on the Hayek Index.
