LeaderTsar Sorejo III


The Tsardom of Lura is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Tsar Sorejo III with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.54 billion Lurans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lunaja-Solare. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Luran economy, worth 191 trillion perpers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,175 perpers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, and airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lura's national animal is the tuatara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Lura is ranked 65,688th in the world and 86th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,302.11 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
