The Grand Empire of Lovelton is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mi General Augusto Pinochet with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.814 billion Loveltonies are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verbrötten-Braunfels. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Loveltone economy, worth 501 trillion Lovels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 178,139 Lovels, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 674,577 per year while the poor average 32,693, a ratio of 20.6 to 1.

Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls, gun-wielding criminals always wear appropriate eye and ear protection, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, and bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lovelton's national animal is the Loveltone Condor, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Lovelton is ranked 30,312th in the world and 43rd in The League of Conservative Nations for Most Developed, scoring 66.76 on the Human Development Index.
