Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Shining Light of Lumierea is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Meo Eos with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 17.806 billion Lumiereans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare is also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katiania. The average income tax rate is 6.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lumierean economy, worth a remarkable 3,795 trillion lumieres a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 213,183 lumieres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Beef-Based Agriculture facilities are being turned into Firefly habitats, Lumierea's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, the entire retail industry has been replaced by online delivery services, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. 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 2,731st in Lazarus and 85,691st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.227 Stalins.
