The Kingdom of San Lumen is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Jason Hohenzollern with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.642 billion San Lumenese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bucharest. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient San Lumenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,515 trillion Giselles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 188,584 Giselles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Police regularly arrest families playing Monopoly, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, bike rage is all the rage, and the comic book series 'King Jason Hohenzollern and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Lumen's national animal is the Mute Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

San Lumen is ranked 134,352nd in the world and 15th in Mediterranean for Most Authoritarian, with 0.04 Stalins.
