The Protectorate of Lucrom is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 583 million Lucromians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Lucro. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lucromian economy, worth 45.8 trillion luxes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,529 luxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cash-strapped politicians frequently host bake sales to fund their campaigns, torture is illegal, people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute, and Lucromians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lucrom's national animal is the firefly, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lucrom is ranked 3,582nd in the world and 7th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 7,362.05 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
