The Tsardom of Lura is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tsar Sorejo III with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.773 billion Lurans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lunaja-Solare. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Luran economy, worth 918 trillion gales a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,638 gales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Building a phallus out of Minecraft blocks counts as indecent exposure, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, and all you have to do is pray to get into Lura. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lura's national animal is the tuatara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lura is ranked 299,725th in the world and 315th in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -477.42 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
