The Kingdom of Lux Pulchrae is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Cleone d'Angeli IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, ubiquitous missile silos, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.217 billion Lux Pulchraeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citta del Re. The average income tax rate is 70.0%.

The all-consuming Lux Pulchraean economy, worth 398 trillion Lire a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 94,525 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

War criminals are given full state funerals, meat-eating is frowned upon, distant and obscure male relatives succeed to the Lux Pulchraean throne, and sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lux Pulchrae's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Lux Pulchrae is ranked 171,875th in the world and 31st in The Iron Confederacy for Most Inclusive, scoring 8.04 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
