Lux Cathia

Population2.379 billion

LeaderThe President


The Republic of Lux Cathia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The President with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.379 billion Lux Cathians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cathix. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Lux Cathian economy, worth 365 trillion Daks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,750 Daks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, twins are held culpable for the actions of their siblings, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lux Cathia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lux Cathia is ranked 142,550th in the world and 5,949th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 571.18 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
