The Theocracy of Ordo Lucis is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by the Magister Sapientiae with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, devout population of 3.15 billion Ordo Lucisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Carthago. The average income tax rate is 75.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Ordo Lucisian economy, worth 637 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 202,516 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, citizens have never heard foreign radio, troublemakers just happen to be reassigned to distant mining operations, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ordo Lucis's national animal is the holy chupacabra, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Superior Knowledge.

Ordo Lucis is ranked 490th in the world and 6th in Europe for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 17,253.26 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
