The Red and Gold Republic of Llorens is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Sofia Vusmein with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.411 billion Llorenians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zexaro. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Llorenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,066 trillion llorenÁs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 166,317 llorenÁs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, and President Sofia Vusmein's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Llorens's national animal is the loquito, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Llorens is ranked 174,764th in the world and 360th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -27.39 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
