Lux Cathia

Population2.345 billion

LeaderThe President


The Republic of Lux Cathia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The President with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.345 billion Lux Cathians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cathix. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Lux Cathian economy, worth 356 trillion Daks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,069 Daks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lux Cathia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lux Cathia is ranked 11,409th in the world and 629th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.32 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
