OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of San Lumen is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Jason Von Habsburg with an even hand, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.045 billion San Lumenese enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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 92%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape San Lumen, voting is voluntary, the government is funneling billions into Cape San Lumen following the shuttle crash, and men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues. 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 4th in Baradoz and 2,977th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 79 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
