Regional Influence: Handshaker


The Grand Duchy of Lexembourg is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Duchess Adlade with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 23.478 billion Lexembourgers 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville Lexembourg. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lexembourgish economy, worth a remarkable 1,247 trillion francs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,140 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lexembourg's national animal is the panthera leo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Lexembourg is ranked 212,891st in the world and 1,095th in Europe for Most Secular, with 12.7 Atheism Rate.
