The Empire of Lurolona is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Raphtalia Iwatani with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 1.69 billion Lurolonans 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 Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rock Valley. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lurolonan economy, worth 237 trillion Denarii a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,594 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government builds houses for foreign newcomers, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, and the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lurolona's national animal is the Tanuki, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Four Heroes Church.

Lurolona is ranked 186,732nd in the world and 3,719th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 38.4 billion Standard Monetary Units.
