OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of San Lumen is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by King Jason Von Habsburg with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.344 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, 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 89%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

San Lumen is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the rich are forced to sell their cars to pay for more police to prevent their cars from being stolen, brazen mayors claim official expenses to pay for their drug habits, and the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security. 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 10,440th in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring 26 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
