The Community of Lummerland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by König Alfons der viertel-vor-Zwölfte with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, fear of technology, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 5.072 billion Lummerlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Das Schloss. The average income tax rate is 35.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Lummerlandian economy, worth 201 trillion Erdbeereis a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,671 Erdbeereis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The distracting décor lining the roads causes multiple pile-ups, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, and truck drivers turn their engines off and coast whenever they're going downhill. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lummerland's national animal is the Frau Mahlzahn oder so ähnlich, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eisenbahn.

Lummerland is ranked 134,186th in the world and 28th in Deutschland for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring zero on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
