The Tsardom of Lura is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tsar Sorejo III with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 2.931 billion Lurans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lunaja-Solare. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Luran economy, worth 401 trillion perpers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 136,918 perpers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary, bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination", it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. 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, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Lura is ranked 53,809th in the world and 151st in Forest for Highest Drug Use, scoring 90.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
