The Shining Light of Lumierea is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Liza Mawu with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Social Equality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katiania. The average income tax rate is 67%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Tourism and Information Technology.

Crime is totally unknown. Lumierea's national animal is the Firefly, its national religion is Hylomorphism, and its currency is the lumiere.
Lumierea is currently considering its options.
