The Kingdom of San Lumen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Jason Hohenzollern with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 25.918 billion San Lumenese enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt, outspoken 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 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient San Lumenian economy, worth a remarkable 4,847 trillion Giselles a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 187,025 Giselles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one born in San Lumen can fix a leaky faucet, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across San Lumen, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, and armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 237,596th in the world and 36th in Mediterranean for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -13.08 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
