The Grand Duchy of Lexembourg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Duchess Adlade with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 25.845 billion Lexembourgers 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville Lexembourg. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lexembourgish economy, worth a remarkable 1,501 trillion francs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,104 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lexembourg's national animal is the panthera leo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Lexembourg is ranked 232,596th in the world and 849th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -18.55 on the Hayek Index.
