The Syndicalist Federations of Lorthanien is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Kastjak with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.326 billion Lorthanians 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 enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lorthograd. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lorthanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,406 trillion Rubleys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 114,126 Rubleys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, and healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lorthanien's national animal is the Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Lorthanien is ranked 5,714th in the world and 131st in The Communist Bloc for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 14,006.53 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
