The Republic of Luminesa is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Neko Hishi with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 12.577 billion Luminesans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Spirituality, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fides. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Luminesan economy, worth a remarkable 1,640 trillion Peeps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 130,402 Peeps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luminesa's national animal is the Chibi Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Luminesa is ranked 216,253rd in the world and 19th in Winterfell for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -306.32 on the Hayek Index.
