Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Lux aeturnum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Jim of Jim with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 21.844 billion Lux aeturnumians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, with Law & Order, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Administration receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 37.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lux aeturnumian economy, worth a remarkable 3,055 trillion guks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,861 guks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, people typically base their votes on which party has the cutest logo, and soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lux aeturnum's national animal is the akak-akak-akah, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lux aeturnum is ranked 34,231st in the world and 826th in The East Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 91.11 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
