The Republic of Light the torch is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its absence of drug laws and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 724 million Light the torchians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 36.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Light the torchian economy, worth 10.4 trillion liberties a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 14,357 liberties, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Light the torch's national animal is the bird.

Light the torch is ranked 238,658th in the world and 2nd in The Liberty Gala for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -10 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.

Most Income Equality: 16,801st
