The Golden Company of Luke Triton is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Captain-General Harry Strickland with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 4.354 billion 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 Volantis. The average income tax rate is 78%. 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.
All new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, Dragon is one of the most popular forenames in Luke Triton, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Luke Triton to be bombproof. 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 Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Dragon.
