The Coming Empire of Lucedeia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Chancellor Lucem Mundum with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.806 billion Lucedeians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunvec. The average income tax rate is 59.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Lucedeian economy, worth 484 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,260 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Environmentalists are staging large protests in front of reopened nuclear power plants, corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, and whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Lucedeian Embarrassments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lucedeia's national animal is the Wolfhound, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Lucedeia is ranked 6,116th in the world and 344th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 16.47 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
