The Twelve Townships of Lubecistan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sire Lubec with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.179 billion Lubecians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Lubecia. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lubecistanian economy, worth 280 trillion Lubecian Meows a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,803 Lubecian Meows, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Escalators are avoided at all costs, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, and contestants on Lubecistan's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lubecistan's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lubecism.

Lubecistan is ranked 6,822nd in the world and 5th in The Maritimes for Most Developed, scoring 92.42 on the Human Development Index.
