New Lukania

Population159 million

The Federal Republic of New Lukania is a very large, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 159 million New Lukanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 44.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong New Lukanian economy, worth 11.5 trillion Lukas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,585 Lukas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Fake beard sales are on the rise amongst female commuters, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, prison overcrowding is being addressed with a series of short sharp shocks, and saying the word 'eggplant' is now a criminal offense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Lukania's national animal is the Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Lukania is ranked 149,806th in the world and 5,827th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 47.09 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
