The Kingdom of Loegries is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Adam Pendragon with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, zero percent divorce rate, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.978 billion Loegriesians 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, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Camelot. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Loegriesian economy, worth 343 trillion sesterces a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 173,631 sesterces, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

City budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Loegries's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Loegries is ranked 11,946th in the world and 484th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 7,757.66 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
