Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Republic of New Lorien is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Arthur McCoy with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.583 billion New Lorienes are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elkin City. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient New Loriene economy, worth 642 trillion Loriens 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 mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 179,180 Loriens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Lorien's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Lorien is ranked 1,023rd in the world and 5th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.39 Years.
