The Allied States of Lorynia is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, devout population of 6.116 billion Lorynians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lorynian economy, worth 615 trillion Larans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,564 Larans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vanity is the constant enemy of dignity, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, group hugs break out during floor votes, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. 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 3,804th in the world and 235th in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 21,738 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
