The Academic Commonwealth of Luso is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Wisest Consul Rosa II with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.336 billion Lusitanis hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Isola di Academia et Rivaille. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lusoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,124 trillion Roundels a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,512 Roundels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

There's a mortuary next to every Lusoan restaurant, concussed Olive Owlball players cannot remember their lineup position, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luso's national animal is the Olive Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Academicism.

Luso is ranked 1,914th in the world and 2nd in International Northwestern Union for Safest, scoring 142.5 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
