Luna State

Population10.415 billion



The Eccentric Skies of Luna State is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Skies with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 10.415 billion Stars 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Luna Statean economy, worth 686 trillion Lunas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 65,922 Lunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes, politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence, Skies's new office is 6 by 8 feet with steel walls and a barred door, and the government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luna State's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Luna State is ranked 107,380th in the world and 4,131st in Osiris for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,077.88 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
