The Republic of Luminesa is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Neko Hishi with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 8.681 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 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Luminesan economy, worth a remarkable 1,170 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 3,693rd in the world and 4th in Winterfell for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 15,299.26 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
