The Desert Trade City of Loc Lac City is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Chief with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.897 billion Monster Hunters 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 relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Guild Hall. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.0%.

The powerhouse Loc Lac Cityian economy, worth 430 trillion Zennies a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 110,397 Zennies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 503,563 per year while the poor average 14,768, a ratio of 34.1 to 1.

Bungee jumpers rarely go splat, pregnant women get a lot of evil glares from fellow passengers when leaving the country, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and foreign planes and migratory birds are shot down as spies. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Loc Lac City's national animal is the Kelbi, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Hunting Code.

Loc Lac City is ranked 174,444th in the world and 312th in Forest for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.98 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
