The Church of The Divine Lucre is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, enforced nudity, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 34.621 billion Divine Lucreans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Divine Lucrean economy, worth a remarkable 4,398 trillion lucres a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 127,033 lucres, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

High food prices have reduced the national diet to staple foods and water, nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as The Divine Lucre's House of Parliament, corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks, and government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Divine Lucre's national animal is the golden squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Divine Lucre is ranked 23,730th in the world and 10th in Equestria for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 291,295 Standard Monetary Units.
