The Asteroid Mines of 21 Lutetia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sam Bell with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 18.248 billion Miners are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldschmidtfels. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The all-consuming Mining economy, worth a remarkable 1,554 trillion chatters a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 85,161 chatters, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 555,290 per year while the poor average 5,168, a ratio of 107 to 1.

Nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, sales of fishnet stockings have reached a record high, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, and it is illegal to liberate slaves. Crime is a problem. 21 Lutetia's national animal is the tardigrade, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is profit.

21 Lutetia is ranked 4,651st in the world and 3rd in Equilism for Fattest Citizens, with 24.14 Obesity Rate.
