The Constitutional Monarchy of Luraqau is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Campbell with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, avant-garde cinema, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.141 billion Luraqis enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haadstęd. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Luraqauan economy, worth 485 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,402 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Luraqau's radio stations, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Luraqis, the well-to-do in New West Indies are never on time for important appointments, and illegal hunting is rife after veganism was recently made compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luraqau's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Luraqau is ranked 149,111th in the world and 66th in New West Indies for Most Authoritarian, with 504.88 milliStalins.
