The Empire of Luckiest Charm is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Luck of the Legion with an even hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, state-planned economy, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, devout population of 5.349 billion Luckiest Charmians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lucksville. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Luckiest Charmian economy, worth 554 trillion Charms 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 an impressive 103,740 Charms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child, burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, and the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luckiest Charm's national animal is the Kitten, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Luckyism.

Luckiest Charm is ranked 40,363rd in the world and 739th in the West Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 1,126 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
