Lux Cathia

Population2.357 billion

LeaderThe President


The Republic of Lux Cathia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The President with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.357 billion Lux Cathians 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cathix. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Lux Cathian economy, worth 359 trillion Daks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,694 Daks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, environmental legislation occurs cyclically, and businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lux Cathia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lux Cathia is ranked 7,545th in the world and 311th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,748.62 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
