The Republic of Luminesa is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Neko Hishi with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.292 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, with Spirituality, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fides. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Luminesan economy, worth a remarkable 1,648 trillion Peeps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 134,129 Peeps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

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 136,566th in the world and 18th in Winterfell for Most Pro-Market, scoring 35.11 on the Rand Index.
