The Democratic Republic of San Luque is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 168 million Luqueans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant San Luquean economy, worth 2.40 trillion Estelas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 14,310 Estelas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is designated as a welfare recipient under Skandilundian law, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Luque's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

San Luque is ranked 184,485th in the world and 77th in Greater Cyngland for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.9 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
