New Lukania

The Federal Republic of New Lukania is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 359 million New Lukanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 46.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong New Lukanian economy, worth 26.2 trillion Lukas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,950 Lukas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Leader signs the laws but abides by none of them, every day at 4am New Lukanians wake to pray for the sun to rise, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, and vacationing New Lukanians expect to be treated as royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Lukania's national animal is the Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Lukania is ranked 45,266th in the world and 1,318th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 541.08 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
