The Free Land of Luciferio is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Howard Aquino with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.847 billion Luciferioans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buné. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Luciferioan economy, worth 256 trillion Zerzoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 138,860 Zerzoes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 561,879 per year while the poor average 22,874, a ratio of 24.6 to 1.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, and sausages are seldomly seen in the supermarket. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Luciferio's national animal is the Ocelot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Satanism.

Luciferio is ranked 28,187th in the world and 24th in Anarchy for Most Pro-Market, scoring 68.89 on the Rand Index.
