The Republic of Luminesa is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Neko Hishi with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.735 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 Healthcare, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fides. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Luminesan economy, worth a remarkable 2,133 trillion Peeps a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,472 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 268,648th in the world and 12th in Winterfell for Fattest Citizens, with 5.33 Obesity Rate.
