OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of San Lumen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Jason Von Habsburg with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.185 billion San Lumenese 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 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.

Almost all of San Lumen's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, abortions are routinely performed in San Lumen's hospitals, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. 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 2nd in Baradoz and 1,310th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,574.75 Net Tourists per hour.
