The Republic of Lutfan is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.895 billion Lutfanis live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manisport. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Lutfanian economy, worth 462 trillion Adriats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 159,818 Adriats, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 676,698 per year while the poor average 24,383, a ratio of 27.8 to 1.

Pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, citizens need a magnifying glass and color chart to distinguish between nearly identical brand labels, the government is a law unto itself, and the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lutfan's national animal is the Siberian Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lutfan is ranked 2,894th in the world and 158th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 8,365.35 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
