The Constitutional Monarchy of Luraqau is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Campbell with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.049 billion Luraqis 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, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haadstęd. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Luraqauan economy, worth 171 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,666 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, the world still seems flat to some people in space, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", and there is something rotten in the state of Luraqau. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luraqau's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Luraqau is ranked 10,195th in the world and 6th in New West Indies for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,571.27 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
