The Teitoku of Lurklife 13 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lemanasyo Leraa with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, prohibition of alcohol, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed population of 3.856 billion Lurklife 13ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iwagawa Kichi. The average income tax rate is 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Lurklife 13ian economy, worth 229 trillion deniers 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 Uranium Mining, Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 59,555 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Small shoes often wash up on the beach, ignorance is considered a politically desirable quality, wedding bands come in pairs to form wedding manacles, and blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lurklife 13's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ten go.

Lurklife 13 is ranked 50,511th in the world and 1st in Huago for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,532.15 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
