The Constitutional Monarchy of Luraqau is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Campbell with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.943 billion Luraqis 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haadstęd. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Luraqauan economy, worth 452 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,506 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags, Prime Minister Campbell is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre, and soldiers are issued comics about superheroes punching unflattering caricatures of their enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luraqau's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Luraqau is ranked 176,961st in the world and 72nd in New West Indies for Most Primitive, scoring -158.51 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
