The Theocracy of Lunalux is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 260 million Lunaluxians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Lunaluxian economy, worth 13.7 trillion Moon Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 52,848 Moon Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Foreigners are treated with great suspicion, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, and the Navy has outraged the international community by sinking a boatload of refugees to prevent them reaching the shore. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lunalux's national animal is the Moth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
