The Constitutional Monarchy of Luraqau is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Jamella with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.69 billion Luraqis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haadstęd. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Luraqauan economy, worth 136 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,937 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, and the restriction that you must be over 1.1 metres tall to ride a carnotaurus has recently been waived. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luraqau's national animal is the Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Luraqau is ranked 158,517th in the world and 56th in New West Indies for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 50.36 Workforce Participation Rate.
