Republic Popular of Lorien

Population11.467 billion

LeaderHelena Iz Zheleza


The Socialist Union of Republic Popular of Lorien is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Helena Iz Zheleza with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.467 billion Lorianoes 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, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lebreville. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Republic Popular of Lorienian economy, worth a remarkable 2,690 trillion Lors 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 234,595 Lors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, third world countries are rich in "I Love Lebreville" t-shirts, children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic Popular of Lorien's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Republic Popular of Lorien is ranked 189,535th in the world and 58th in Novo Brasil for Most Pro-Market, scoring -83.67 on the Rand Index.
