The Shining Light of Lumierea is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Meo Eos with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 15.327 billion Lumiereans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Healthcare and Social Equality are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katiania. The average income tax rate is 68%, 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.
Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, the government is phasing in welfare programmes to tackle poverty, highschool principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. Crime is totally unknown. Lumierea's national animal is the Firefly, its national religion is Hylomorphism, and its currency is the lumiere.
