The Longmouth Lowland University of Llu is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Dean Tyson with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 3.7 billion Lluans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lluan economy, worth 282 trillion Dining Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,450 Dining Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, late night adverts for breast milk co-ops regularly win pornography industry awards, there's more hugging than talking in most talk shows, and social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content. 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 31,753rd in the world and 163rd in Forest for Smartest Citizens, with 46.33 Quips Per Hour.
