The Shining Light of Lumierea is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Liza Mawu with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 14.511 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 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.

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.

Lumierea is ranked 36th in the Pacific and 1,625th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 113 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
