The Kingdom of Loop Quantum Gravity is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Eeriana the Omnipotent with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.696 billion Loop Quantum Gravityians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of String Theory. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Loop Quantum Gravityian economy, worth an astonishing 10,317 trillion quarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 435,411 quarks, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government has enacted freedom of information, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, and blasphemers and government critics often die in very unusual and unlikely accidents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Loop Quantum Gravity's national animal is the fire dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Gospel of Merlin.

Loop Quantum Gravity is ranked 226,662nd in the world and 6,018th in the West Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -49.4 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
