The Tsardom of Lura is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Tsar Sorejo III with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.17 billion Lurans 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 large 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 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Luran economy, worth 436 trillion perpers a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 137,609 perpers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Lura, and motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Crime 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, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Lura is ranked 71,280th in the world and 177th in Forest for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 164,395 Standard Monetary Units.
