The United Socialist States of Lumito is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Arthur with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, parental licensing program, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.374 billion Lumitoans 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 enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phos. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lumitoan economy, worth 145 trillion lumos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 61,178 lumos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, untold millions of lumos are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, Arthur's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, and visions of giant pink owls are a common side effect after Lumitoans eat their meals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lumito's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lumito is ranked 1,150th in the world and 759th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 131 Valid Endorsements.
