OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Republic of Lightford is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Josip Pusztai with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.507 billion Lightfordians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterview City. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lightfordian economy, worth a remarkable 1,576 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 210,045 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, military spending is on the increase, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime is totally unknown. Lightford's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lightford is ranked 8,355th in the world and 5th in Krillin for Lowest Crime Rates, with 98.54 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
