The Rogue Nation of Lucus is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 340 million Lucans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romulus. The average income tax rate is 47.1%.

The powerhouse Lucan economy, worth 39.4 trillion UMCS a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,917 UMCS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The military will start wars with other nations on a lark, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, the restriction that you must be over 1.1 metres tall to ride a carnotaurus has recently been waived, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lucus's national animal is the Red Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lucus is ranked 19,787th in the world and 1,299th in Balder for Healthiest Citizens, with 8.85 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
