The Longmouth Lowland University of Llu is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Dean Tyson with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.067 billion Lluans 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, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Dean's Residence. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lluan economy, worth 230 trillion Dining Credits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,234 Dining Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Lluan language, sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, movie references are legally admissible in court, and therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Llu's national animal is the Zokor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Llu is ranked 7,950th in the world and 98th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.61 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
