The Empire of Lucidum is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nicholas Hamish Young with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 872 million Lucidumians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lucidia. The average income tax rate is 64.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Lucidumian economy, worth 56.2 trillion Stars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 64,484 Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The police turn a blind eye to desecration if it's done in the name of religion or protest, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", and schoolkids are often mistaken for fast food workers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lucidum's national animal is the Trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Lucidum is ranked 204,654th in the world and 316th in The Union of Democratic States for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -7.67 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
