The Constitutional Monarchy of Luraqau is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Campbell with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.489 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haadstęd. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Luraqauan economy, worth 314 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,189 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, citizens must inform the government each time they have a haircut, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. 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 25,039th in the world and 16th in New West Indies for Highest Poor Incomes, with 56,387.24 Standard Monetary Units.
