The Republic of Luminaros is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by EQ with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed population of 8.208 billion Luminarians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luminaris. The average income tax rate is 64.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Luminarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,116 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,980 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

A bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and the well-to-do in The Free Nations Region are never on time for important appointments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luminaros's national animal is the dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Luminaros is ranked 16,462nd in the world and 16th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Economic Output, with 1,116 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
