The Holy Roman Empire of Lucanorum is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Imperator Caesar Augustus Angelus Lucas with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.041 billion Lucani are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caesarea. The average income tax rate is 50.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lucanese economy, worth 115 trillion Ducats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,536 Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Lucani, and cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lucanorum's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Lucanorum is ranked 147,055th in the world and 711th in Europe for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
