The Democratic Republic of Lightford is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Josip Pusztai with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.023 billion Lightfordians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterview City. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lightfordian economy, worth 788 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 195,932 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Lightford's radio stations. Crime is totally unknown. Lightford's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lightford is ranked 49,980th in the world and 36th in Krillin for Most Stationary, with 199.02315734732 Days.
