LeaderPresident Justine Vartu


The Red and Gold Republic of Llorens is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Justine Vartu with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.575 billion Llorenians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zexaro. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Llorenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,873 trillion llorenÁs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 195,715 llorenÁs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, hit TV comedies "The Big Government Theory" and "Young President Justine Vartu" have high ratings but low quality, and the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Llorens's national animal is the loquito, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Llorens is ranked 15,814th in the world and 99th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 19,696.73 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
