The Kingdom of San Lumen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Jason Hohenzollern with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.036 billion San Lumenese are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bucharest. The average income tax rate is 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient San Lumenian economy, worth a remarkable 4,571 trillion Giselles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,202 Giselles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The entire entry for San Lumen in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', it's been a banner year for local vexillology, internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, and internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Lumen's national animal is the Mute Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

San Lumen is ranked 5,805th in the world and 6th in Mediterranean for Safest, scoring 126.12 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
