The Community of Tomorrow of Vorela is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Laurasia Lozier with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.828 billion Vorelese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sterlin. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vorelese economy, worth 977 trillion Roos a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 143,104 Roos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recreational drug businesses are regularly pruned if they grow above the maximum legal size, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps. Crime is totally unknown. Vorela's national animal is the Slasang, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vorela is ranked 204,111th in the world and 123rd in South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -10.97 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
