The People's Republic of Lux aeturnum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Jim of Jim with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 22.883 billion Lux aeturnumians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, although Law & Order, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Administration receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 36.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lux aeturnumian economy, worth a remarkable 3,497 trillion guks a year, is led 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 152,846 guks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is compulsory, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, and the government has adopted a more thrifty attitude to administrating the country's needs. 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 71,819th in the world and 3,322nd in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 62.1 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
