The People's Republic of Lornlandis is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 360 million Lornlandisians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 27.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Lornlandisian economy, worth 16.3 trillion marks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,413 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, homophobia is off the menu, Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime is totally unknown. Lornlandis's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lornlandis is ranked 28,712th in the world and 1,373rd in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.05 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
