LeaderThe Great Potato


The Federation of Luminerra is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Great Potato with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.231 billion Luminerrans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lucerna. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Luminerran economy, worth 325 trillion Lyudas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,720 Lyudas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luminerra's national animal is the Starfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Potatoism.

Luminerra is ranked 224,359th in the world and 11,522nd in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.6 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
