The Allied States of Lorynia is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 4.117 billion Lorynians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lorynian economy, worth 409 trillion Larans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,399 Larans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

At least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe, card collectors duel to the death, the weather is the nation's most risqué topic of conversation, and owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lorynia's national animal is the Starling, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Elreithalyn.

Lorynia is ranked 161,532nd in the world and 7,106th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -8.94 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
