The Sacred Kingdom of Lumir is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HRM Queen Aquaria XXVII with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.395 billion Lumirians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aquios. The average income tax rate is 92.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Lumirian economy, worth a remarkable 2,355 trillion fols a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,656 fols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Being dead no longer has any benefits, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Lumirian Liberator", sleeping on the job is recommended, and opening a bad email attachment can be a major felony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lumir's national animal is the nu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Church of Apris.

Lumir is ranked 5,629th in the world and 13th in Pony Lands for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 496.48 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
