The People's Republic of Lurinsk is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.115 billion Lurinskans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luhansk. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Lurinskin economy, worth 59.1 trillion new rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 52,973 new rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, young people suspect their parents might be a little bit stupid, behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos, and the election for Leader's office's janitor is heating up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lurinsk's national animal is the nightingale, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lurinsk is ranked 58,271st in the world and 2,626th in Balder for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,605.66 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
