OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of San Lumen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Jason Von Habsburg with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate population of 11.431 billion San Lumenese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Citizens must have a license to operate a computer, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, and pregnancy is being used by teenage girls as a quick way to making pocket money. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. San Lumen's national animal is the Mute Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Giselle.

San Lumen is ranked 1st in Baradoz and 238th in the world for Best Weather, with 941 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
