OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of San Lumen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Jason Von Habsburg with an even hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.564 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, corrupt, socially-minded 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 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, anti-government web sites are springing up, and children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet. 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 228th in the world for Best Weather, with 955 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
