The Theocracy of Lux Umbrat is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 384 million Lux Umbratians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of UrbisPolis. The average income tax rate is 74.0%.
The very strong Lux Umbratian economy, worth 29.8 trillion Drachmes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,537 Drachmes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.
The best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, people's charity begins and ends at home, no-one bats an eye when 'really good platonic friends' of the same sex hold hands in Lux Umbrat, and the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lux Umbrat's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
