The Eccentric Skies of Luna State is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Skies with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 14.323 billion Stars love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Luna Statean economy, worth 963 trillion Lunas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 67,272 Lunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

NationStates staff are easily recognizable by their gold-plated mansions, the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, babysitters are a thing of the past, and citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luna State's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Luna State is ranked 293,538th in the world and 9,567th in Osiris for Fattest Citizens, with 5.62 Obesity Rate.
