The Borderlands of Lumilia is a massive, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.554 billion Lumilians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aglaia City. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lumilian economy, worth 326 trillion Sils a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,872 Sils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, the children of Lumilia are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, and diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lumilia's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Owarism.

Lumilia is ranked 278,552nd in the world and 40th in Lily for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -10 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
