The Imperial Republic of Loungdako is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Shinmenkhar with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.898 billion Loungdakese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tsamarhun. The average income tax rate is 84.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Loungdakese economy, worth 258 trillion kanus a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,961 kanus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, and internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Loungdakese weed picker are way up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Loungdako's national animal is the Loungdakese phoenix-bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Senhihue.

Loungdako is ranked 220,723rd in the world and 8,242nd in The North Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 0.56 Flags saluted per person per day.
