The United Socialist States of Lumito is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arthur with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.317 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 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 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Lumitoan economy, worth 60.4 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 45,859 lumos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, and skin-tone prom dresses are more unpopular than ever. 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 33,691st in the world and 1,849th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 117.09 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
