The Theocracy of Luminumbra is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 1.176 billion Luminumbrans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luminumbra Prime. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Luminumbran economy, worth 93.9 trillion Quarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 79,869 Quarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Attempted suicide is punishable by public hanging, even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as the seat of government, and waste is frequently shipped to other countries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luminumbra's national animal is the Chromalis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Luminumbra is ranked 30,699th in the world and 1,808th in Balder for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 1,964.76 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
