The Allied States of Lorynia is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 7.03 billion Lorynians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lorynian economy, worth 702 trillion Larans a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,997 Larans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight, athletic teenagers are among the wealthiest members of society, Leader's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, and courtrooms can be a little sketchy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lorynia's national animal is the Starling, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Elreithalyn.

Lorynia is ranked 154,444th in the world and 2,720th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 118 billion Standard Monetary Units.
