The Tsardom of Lura is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Tsar Sorejo III with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.146 billion Lurans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal 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 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Luran economy, worth 534 trillion gales a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,981 gales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Lura's radio stations, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and rumor has it that Tsar Sorejo III has won three lotteries in a row. Crime 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.

Lura is ranked 226,181st in the world and 363rd in Forest for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -8.72 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
