The Kingdom of San Lumen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Jason Hohenzollern with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.5 billion San Lumenese love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt 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 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient San Lumenian economy, worth a remarkable 4,465 trillion Giselles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,020 Giselles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolchildren are taught to boo and hiss at King Jason Hohenzollern's name, third world countries are rich in "I Love Bucharest" t-shirts, the entire entry for San Lumen in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. 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 182,056th in the world and 25th in Mediterranean for Most Avoided, scoring 0.23 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
