Location: the Rejected Realms

Regional Influence: Nipper


The Grand Duchy of Lighting McQueen is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 306 million Lighting McQueenians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 14.2%.

The all-consuming Lighting McQueenian economy, worth 19.5 trillion Coolant and Oil and Gases a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 63,633 Coolant and Oil and Gases, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Foragers descend on national cemeteries for 'all-you-can-dig-up' extravaganzas, a degree of self-hatred is vital for a future in politics, the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, and customers who are not the epitome of politeness always find themselves at the back of the queue. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Lighting McQueen's national animal is the Engines, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lighting McQueen is ranked 182,890th in the world and 5,101st in the Rejected Realms for Highest Economic Output, with 19.5 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
