The Kingdom of Lnua is a huge, safe nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 868 million Lunans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville De La Lune. The average income tax rate is 46.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lunan economy, worth 89.7 trillion Hapunas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,288 Hapunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, and farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lnua's national animal is the Boba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lnua is ranked 25,013th in the world and 1,361st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 70.58 on the Human Development Index.
