Luxenshire

Population62 million

CurrencyLuxbrea
AnimalWhite Tailed Finch

The United Kingdom of Luxenshire is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 62 million Luxens 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 Spirituality, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Luxenshirean economy, worth 2.56 trillion Luxbreas a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,318 Luxbreas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, and genetic research has been halted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luxenshire's national animal is the White Tailed Finch, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Luxenshire is ranked 140,051st in the world and 5th in The Havenish Commonwealth of Nations for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 53.12 Workforce Participation Rate.
