The Federal Republic of Louranie is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.287 billion Louranes 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 relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Braighton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Louraniean economy, worth 228 trillion Lourane Dills a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 177,733 Lourane Dills, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 704,964 per year while the poor average 30,260, a ratio of 23.3 to 1.

There's a hole in the heart of every Louraniean city, genetic researchers have been expelled, artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, and autocrats are persona non grata. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Louranie's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Louranie is ranked 37,037th in the world and 43rd in European Union for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 70.72 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
