The Public Hegemony of Loysville is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by the general public with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 2.344 billion Loys enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Industry, although Welfare, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Matthias. The average income tax rate is 40.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Loy economy, worth 319 trillion dolloys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 136,164 dolloys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

People who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, communists in Loysville note that wealth should be equal but that some should have more of that equality than others, and state dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Loysville's national animal is the loyion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Loysville is ranked 19,966th in the world and 4th in Dexter for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,966.04 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
