Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Federal Republic of Terra Luce is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord President Barnes with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.278 billion Terra Lutians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Fort Locke. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Terra Lucean economy, worth a remarkable 1,706 trillion Tellurs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,332 Tellurs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, Lord President Barnes is adamant that ponies aren't just for little girls, and local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities. Crime is totally unknown. Terra Luce's national animal is the minotaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eruditism.

Terra Luce is ranked 41,982nd in the world and 1st in The Louisiana Purchase Union for Highest Drug Use, scoring 87.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
