The Puzzling Principality of Luke Triton is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Professor Hershel Layton with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.526 billion Luke Tritonians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 78%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luke Triton's national animal is the Keat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Hint Coin.

Luke Triton is ranked 8th in The Allied Republics and 4,897th in the world for Best Weather, with 194 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
