OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of San Lumen is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Jason Von Habsburg with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.252 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 90%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, nursing mothers are often arrested for indecent exposure, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and the government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS. 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 11th in Baradoz and 112,364th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -437.099 Insults Per Minute (net).
