The Kingdom of Lux Lumin is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lucille Lumin with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.939 billion Lux Luminians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ignis Incendium. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Lux Luminian economy, worth 390 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 133,022 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, the children of Lux Lumin are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and the nation's nuclear defence policy is to "turn the other cheek". Crime is totally unknown. Lux Lumin's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Lux Lumin is ranked 949th in the world and 4th in Spiritus for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 15,562.07 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
