Luchu is a country made up of most of the "Luchu Archipelago", which stretches from the near the southeast of Japan (Kyushu) to near the northwest of Taiwan. For an independent nation, its population is quite small - only around 200,000. 69% of the population lives on the island of Uchina. (47% of the Luchu population lives in Uchina City.) Currently, Luchu is becoming a tourist destination for Japanese. Aware of both the money this will bring in, as well as the lifestyle changes and possible environmental degradation, Luchu has designated some areas (notably, much of Uchina Island) as tourist areas while protecting others using international environmental and cultural measures. From 2000-2005, the economy grew by an estimated 6% per year.
