The Theocracy of Lunalux is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 678 million Lunaluxians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ithil Londo. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Lunaluxian economy, worth 47.8 trillion Titaniums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 70,454 Titaniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, Lunaluxian farm salmon are known for being both horribly diseased and remarkably acrobatic, Lunaluxian schoolgirl uniforms have become alarmingly popular outside Lunalux, and one of the nation's leading exports is empty platitudes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lunalux's national animal is the Moth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lunalux is ranked 44,284th in the world and 3rd in A Pretty Good Region for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
