The United Socialist States of Lumito is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Arthur with an iron fist, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.85 billion Lumitoans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phos. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Lumitoan economy, worth 98.4 trillion lumos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 53,179 lumos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians cheer the nation's surging death rate, protests are legal but strictly supervised, the government violently suppresses separatist movements, and one complaint of Lumito's new periodic table is it's easy to confuse fearlessleaderium with gloriousleaderium. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lumito's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lumito is ranked 104,087th in the world and 3,249th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 140 billion Standard Monetary Units.
