The Kingdom of Lnua is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.777 billion Lunans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville De La Lune. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lunan economy, worth 292 trillion Hapunas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,406 Hapunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, and NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lnua's national animal is the Boba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lnua is ranked 14,952nd in the world and 806th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,885.5 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
