The Kingdom of Lux Pulchrae is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Cleone d'Angeli IV with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, fear of technology, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 9.478 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 70.2%.

The all-consuming Lux Pulchraean economy, worth 889 trillion Lire a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,869 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 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 213,312th in the world and 7,747th in Lazarus for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 22.94 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
