The Theocracy of Lux Umbrat is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, zero percent divorce rate, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 871 million Lux Umbratians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of UrbisPolis. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lux Umbratian economy, worth 78.1 trillion Drachmes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 89,655 Drachmes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Religious epiphanies are often cited as a reason for high school drop-outs, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, judicial torture is outsourced overseas, and children often kick Doves for amusement. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lux Umbrat's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lux Umbrat is ranked 26,578th in the world and 871st in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 61,554.72 Standard Monetary Units.
