The Disputed Territories of Luqaqua is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 379 million Luqaquans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 51.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Luqaquan economy, worth 20.9 trillion Niks a year, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,238 Niks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Luqaquans, journalists giggle uncontrollably while reporting the nation's drug bonfires, and insanely good theatre productions face government censorship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luqaqua's national animal is the Robin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Luqaqua is ranked 99,224th in the world and 4,062nd in the Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,489.27 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
