The Tsardom of Lura is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tsar Sorejo III with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.11 billion Lurans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lunaja-Solare. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Luran economy, worth 818 trillion gales a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,927 gales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Skateparks can be found in every city, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and foreign leaders are advising that Tsar Sorejo III's letters must have gotten lost in the mail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lura's national animal is the tuatara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lura is ranked 228,482nd in the world and 237th in Forest for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -5.66 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
