The Democratic state of The Authoritarian Republic of Lochario is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Harry Weissenger with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.231 billion Locharians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zun. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Locharian economy, worth a remarkable 3,139 trillion Espoes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 434,126 Espoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, the standard government reply to any query is "there is no spoon", drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Authoritarian Republic of Lochario's national animal is the Ginger Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Authoritarian Republic of Lochario is ranked 4,473rd in the world and 1st in Global Union Consortium for Highest Economic Output, with 3,139 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
