The Federal Republic of Louranie is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 733 million Louranes enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Braighton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Louraniean economy, worth 91.7 trillion Lourane Dills a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 125,087 Lourane Dills, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

One year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for Leader's office, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, and on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Louranie's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Louranie is ranked 73,797th in the world and 57th in European Union for Safest, scoring 87.92 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
