The Republic of Luminesa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Neko Hishi with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 8.867 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 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Luminesan economy, worth a remarkable 1,195 trillion Jellybeans 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,801 Jellybeans, 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 158,246th in the world and 29th in Winterfell for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -22.45 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
