The Tsardom of Lura is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Tsar Sorejo III with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.705 billion Lurans 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 Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lunaja-Solare. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Luran economy, worth 210 trillion perpers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 123,589 perpers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lura's national animal is the tuatara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Lura is ranked 202,680th in the world and 372nd in Forest for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -17.03 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
