The Archipellago of Lun Noir is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Caleb Westinghouse III with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.598 billion Lun Noirians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Law & Order, although Industry and Defense are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bruske. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Lun Noirian economy, worth a remarkable 1,861 trillion credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 216,497 credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 918,627 per year while the poor average 32,911, a ratio of 27.9 to 1.

It's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, the government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production, and future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Lun Noir's national animal is the scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lun Noir is ranked 147,479th in the world and 2nd in WildStar for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4.2 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
