The Empire of Luxictiva Welvenezteland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Protectorate Andrew Kingston with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.888 billion Luxictiva Welveneztelandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperium. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Luxictiva Welveneztelandian economy, worth 522 trillion Marcs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 180,776 Marcs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's always rabbit season, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luxictiva Welvenezteland's national animal is the Lygonian Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Luxictiva Welvenezteland is ranked 18,837th in the world and 798th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,548.23 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
