Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Shining Light of Lumierea is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Meo Eos with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 18.304 billion Lumiereans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katiania. The average income tax rate is 14.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lumierean economy, worth a remarkable 3,729 trillion lumieres a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 203,735 lumieres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, untold millions of lumieres are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime is totally unknown. Lumierea's national animal is the Firefly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hylomorphism.

Lumierea is ranked 191,993rd in the world and 5,386th in Lazarus for Most Primitive, scoring -489.95 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
