The Grand Duchy of Lexembourg is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Duchess Adlade with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 21.924 billion Lexembourgers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville Lexembourg. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lexembourgish economy, worth a remarkable 1,305 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,548 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lexembourg's national animal is the panthera leo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Lexembourg is ranked 20,111th in the world and 137th in Europe for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 5,821.14 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
