The Bleu Moon of Luna Amore is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Billy Pilgrim with an iron fist, and remarkable for its surprisingly youthful workforce, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 25.207 billion Amorians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The large, liberal, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Social Policy, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mare Loon. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The large but stagnant Amorian economy, worth 342 trillion pop-tops a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is 13,577 pop-tops, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown. Luna Amore's national animal is the Infamous Marxist Loon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tao te Loon.

Luna Amore is ranked 3rd in Free Thought and 1,931st in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 337 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
