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.
