Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Republic of New Lorien is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Arthur McCoy with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.782 billion New Lorienes love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 691 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 Tourism. Average income is an impressive 182,829 Loriens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Owlball fields, lavish state dinners in Elkin City are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. 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 815th in the world and 2nd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 36,761.56 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
