The Republic of Luminaros is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by EQ with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The hard-nosed population of 6.86 billion Luminarians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luminaris. The average income tax rate is 58.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Luminarian economy, worth 888 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,464 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, it's said that any enemy of democracy is a friend to EQ, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luminaros's national animal is the dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Luminaros is ranked 9,266th in the world and 213th in the West Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 11,393.69 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
