The Empire of Lugmeltistan is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lugard Melton with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.21 billion Lugmeltistanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lugmelt City. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lugmeltistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,030 trillion Ardonics a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 142,977 Ardonics, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, and the Violetist community celebrates bombshells being dropped on Lugmeltistan. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lugmeltistan's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lugmeltistan is ranked 10,531st in the world and 244th in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 83.98 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
