The County of Simon Lusson is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its burgeoning beaver population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 20.903 billion Simon Lussonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lusson Common. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.9%.

The very strong Simon Lussonian economy, worth 724 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 34,640 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and Simon Lusson has designated Lusson Common as its capital city. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Simon Lusson's national animal is the beaver, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Simon Lusson is ranked 121,012th in the world and 7th in Toronto for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 40.44 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
