The Empire of Lucidum is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Rhea Delaney with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.105 billion Lucidumians 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nasjek. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lucidumian economy, worth 149 trillion Stars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Cheese Exports. Average income is 71,147 Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre, discarded pennies litter the streets, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lucidum's national animal is the Trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Lucidum is ranked 88,938th in the world and 108th in The Union of Democratic States for Highest Economic Output, with 149 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
