The Mountain Kingdom of Lusgastan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arthur Flintlock with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical, humorless population of 1.762 billion Lusgastainians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Logatoor. The average income tax rate is 32.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lusgastian economy, worth 192 trillion Kunes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 109,120 Kunes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Logatoor Times is sold out, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms. Crime is totally unknown. Lusgastan's national animal is the manatee, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Moublinism.

Lusgastan is ranked 110,587th in the world and 11th in Valaryia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 144,082 Standard Monetary Units.
