The Republic of Light41 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.121 billion Light41ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.4%.

The powerhouse Light41ian economy, worth 128 trillion rubles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,622 rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 219,620 per year while the poor average 11,930, a ratio of 18.4 to 1.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Light41 City Times is sold out, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, people who have lived their entire lives in Light41 are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, and every week is blindness awareness week. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Light41's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Light41 is ranked 112,506th in the world and 2,539th in Artificial Solar System for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,394.15 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
