Since 'Llome is such a hotbed of unique, fast-moving evolution, the reader may be tempted to ask, what will the future bring? Well, Dr. O. B. Preuss himself had taken this matter under study very carefully. Here is a straw-man prospective of 'Llombic evolution, a number of potential inhabitants to develop as time progresses (based upon those already living in 'Llome). As you can see, a good number of permutations await the visitor to 'Llome!
The nation lost to obscurity is the amazing land of Fnoertania. In Fnoertania, scientists have developed a form of the element lead (symbol Pb) which is lighter than air. A great industry in making genuine lead balloons once thrived in Fnoertania. Fnoertania was ruled by a Sultan whose main passion was in collecting very rare essential oils (oils extracted from very rare herbs and medicinal plants). Since the Sultan controlled the entire lead balloon industry for the world, financing his purchases was always easy, and he could be as wasteful of the rare compounds as he wished. Below is a picture of Fnoertania and the Sultanate:
You can see that the Sultan is having the expensive Cohosh Oil (or in the Fnoertanian dialect, Oyvil) pumped up to the palace, probably used for heating. Meanwhile, tourists in lead balloons do some sightseeing. Oh yes, the lighter-than-air lead is used to manufacture flying bicycles, such as the one being ridden by the monocular Fnoertanian at upper left.
