Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Shining Light of Lumierea is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Meo Eos with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 18.449 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 receive no funds. 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 3,758 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 17th in the world and 2nd in Lazarus for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 43,210.62 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
