Lux Lumen

Population1.615 billion



The Peruvian Republic of Lux Lumen is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.615 billion Lux Lumenians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athens. The average income tax rate is 22.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lux Lumenian economy, worth 188 trillion Lumens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 116,431 Lumens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Bris parties are all the rage, Mona Lola's famous mysterious smile is being altered to resemble Leader's enigmatic grin, Leader has just been declared ruler of Lux Lumen in an international press conference, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lux Lumen's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lux Lumen is ranked 74,840th in the world and 26th in The Roleplay Chessboard for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,800.46 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
