The Kingdom of Lugnan is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by King Yamândù III with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 828 million Lugnanese love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tuyêngurà. The average income tax rate is 89.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Lugnanese economy, worth 47.0 trillion duans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,704 duans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, King Yamândù III is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lugnan's national animal is the bird of paradise, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lugnan is ranked 200,125th in the world and 303rd in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.54 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
