The Ranskal Speaking Empire of Lorscinia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lynda Amelia Louise with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.3 billion Lorscinians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sharlot. The average income tax rate is 33.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Lorscinian economy, worth 72.1 trillion Liens a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,458 Liens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, Lynda Amelia Louise is the self-declared God of all Lorscinia, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, and the newest East Lebatuckese coins have "long live East Lebatuck" on heads and "death to Lorscinia" on tails. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lorscinia's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Liticism.

Lorscinia is ranked 83,934th in the world and 444th in Europeia for Most Developed, scoring 58.34 on the Human Development Index.
