The United Kingdom of Luxenshire is a huge, safe nation, notable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 436 million Luxens are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic government prioritizes Spirituality, with Healthcare, Education, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elstineglade. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Luxenshirean economy, worth 19.9 trillion Luxbreas a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,724 Luxbreas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many politicians are having to do a hard day's work for the first time in their careers, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, the judicial system legislates morality, and the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Elstineglade for fear of causing a fuss. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luxenshire's national animal is the White Tailed Finch, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Luxenshire is ranked 134,974th in the world and 5th in The Havenish Commonwealth of Nations for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 42.52 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
