The Khanate of Shule and Kingdom of Lucedeia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Irganos II with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 7.568 billion Lucedeians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neapolis. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lucedeian economy, worth a remarkable 1,041 trillion Drachms a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,626 Drachms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips, politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in The North Pacific, and the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture. 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 Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Manichaeism.

Lucedeia is ranked 42,511th in the world and 862nd in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 7.57 billion Capita.
