Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federal Republic of Terra Luce is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Lord President Barnes with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.656 billion Terra Luceans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Fort Locke. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Terra Lucean economy, worth 597 trillion Terrans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,042 Terrans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Invading armies are given hard glares for their cheek, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned minotaurball fields, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime is totally unknown. Terra Luce's national animal is the minotaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zaakaranism.

Terra Luce is ranked 2nd in Cyclone Coast and 138,219th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -260 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
