The Reticulated Splines of Luna Amore is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Billy Pilgrim with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 35.501 billion Amorians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mare Loon. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Amorian economy, worth an astonishing 11,716 trillion pop-tops a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 330,039 pop-tops, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,172,370 per year while the poor average 66,956, a ratio of 17.5 to 1.

The ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, a sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers, mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation, and the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region. Crime is totally unknown. Luna Amore's national animal is the Infamous Marxist Loon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tao te Loon.

Luna Amore is ranked 113th in the world and 1st in Free Thought for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 63,114.16 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
